In Search of Odradek

“In Search of Odradek” is an outdoor game based on one of Kafka’s short stories. It involves a search for a mythical creature about whose appearance, purpose and movements in the Prague Jewish Quarter we know relatively little from Kafka’s work. The game invites visitors of all ages to explore the Jewish Quarter as it originally looked (before its urban renewal) and to set out in pursuit of this mysterious creature.

Oded Ezer: The Samsa Enigma

A June 1916 edition of the Prager Tagblatt newspaper contained a delirious account of Gregor Samsa’s re-metamorphosis in a trash heap behind the city walls. Inspired by The Metamorphosis, it was written by Karl Brand, an admirer of Kafka’s work. This is illustrative of the immediate impact that Kafka’s story had on the imagination of readers and authors alike – including the author featured in Oded Ezer’s exhibition The Samsa Enigma.
