Completely Kafka - Exhibition by Nicolas Mahler

Nicolas Mahler's portrait and the book cover

Franz Kafka, one of the most famous German-speaking writers, died 100 years ago. His name became internationally known only after his death. His works, including The Metamorphosis, The Trial, and The Castle, have since become part of the international cultural canon.

Franz Kafka was not only a prose writer but also passionate about drawing. To mark the anniversary, his characters are brought to life in a comic strip biography by Nicolas Mahler.

Exhibition Opening: Monday, June 3, 2024, at 6 PM in the Atrium of the Central Library of MESZL (Budapest VIII. Szabó Ervin tér 1., entrance from Reviczky Street 1.).


Welcome speech by Ágnes Kovácsné Koreny, Director General of the Metropolitan Szabó Ervin Library.
Opening of the exhibition by Miriam Bruns, Director of the Goethe Institute.

The exhibition will be showcased from June 3 to June 29 in the Atrium of the Central Library at the Metropolitan Szabó Ervin Library during the library's opening hours.
