+++ "K"-PROJECT - 'FRANZ KAFKA - THE CASTLE' AS SOUND
INSTALLATION AT THE FONDAZIONE PRADA IN MILAN FEBRUARY 2020 +++

The exhibition “K” at Fondazione Prada features Martin Kippenberger’s legendary artwork "The Happy End of Franz Kafka’s “Amerika”, accompanied by Orson Welles’ iconic film "The Trial" and Tangerine Dream’s late electronic album "Franz Kafka The Castle". Conceived by Udo Kittelmann {inter alia the director of the National Gallery Berlin} as a coexisting trilogy, “K” is inspired by three uncompleted and seminal novels by Franz Kafka (1883-1924 'Amerika' (America), 'Der Prozess' (The Trial), and 'Das Schloss' (The Castle) posthumously published from 1925 and 1927.

By request of Udo Kittelmann, curator of the exhibition "K", and in cooperation with Bianca Froese-Acquaye, as administrator of the music heritage of Edgar Froese and management of Tangerine Dream, the exhibition "K" could be completed by the third part. The sound installation will be played on a loop in the Cisterna. This enclosed exhibition space will be transformed in an evocative and comfortable environment, where visitors can hang out and listen to the music by the German electronic music band founded by Edgar Froese in 1967.

We are proud and feel honoured to be a part of this extraordinary exhibition.
21 Feb – 27 Jul 2020, Fondazione Prada, Milan/Italy
