Before the Law / Vor dem Gesetz



In the Cathedral chapter of Kafka's The Trial his short story Before the Law reappears. However, the artist did not include this part in the film "The Trial", but put it into an animation format in order to install it parallel to the film "The Trial".

The entire stage set consists of sculpturally crafted miniature objects, and the narrator's voice guides the story through the acting.

The impact of the piece was maximized by close-ups of the stage with the door of the law as a backdrop and the play of the two characters made of clay.
