Kafka Now!


Kafka Now! is a project devoted to sharing Kafka's lesser-known texts to new audiences. This journey begins, in 2021, by launching a series of short videos that adapt a selection of literary fragments into visual poems, pairing voice performance with archival footage and music, all evoking Kafka's era. These passages show a writer alert to the smallest details in the world around him and his connections with the people in it.
