“K” is a project that features three elements in dialogue with each other: the fundamental work by German artist Martin Kippenberger The Happy End of Franz Kafka’s “Amerika”, the iconic Orson Welles film The Trial and the electronic music album The Castle by Tangerine Dream.

The project, curated by Udo Kittelmann, refers to three unfinished novels by Franz Kafka: Amerika (America), Der Prozess (The Trial) and Das Schloss (The Castle) published posthumously between 1925 and 1927. The exhibited artworks are personal readings of Kafka’s subjects and atmospheres, possible interpretations of his three novels which, according to Max Brod, form a “trilogy of solitude”.

At the centre of “K” is Martin Kippenberger’s installation The Happy End of Franz Kafka’s “Amerika” (1994), on display on the ground floor of the Podium and for the first time exhibited in Italy. Based on the novel America, the work reimagines a sequence of the book in which the protagonist Karl Rossman, after travelling across the United States, seeks employment in the “world’s largest theatre”. The artist translates this literary image into a complex installation. He recreates a vast soccer field that hosts a series of collective job interviews and occupy it with a large number of furnishings (tables, vintage design elements and flea market chairs), works by other artists and objects from his previous exhibitions.
