The Language of Images: Examining the Translation of Text to Comic in an Adaptation of Kafka
Literary works of Franz Kafka are some of the most prominent to be translated into comic adaptations. The author’s abundant use of metaphor provides a rich field of possibility for transforming text into visual narratives with layers of multiple meanings, often reflecting not just the story’s narrative, but aspects of the author himself. Comic artist and PathoGraphics researcher stef lenk will give a short presentation on process and development of her own work in wordless comics, followed by a workshop in understanding the ‘language of images’. Students will be given a short text by Kafka to break down and discuss how it could be ‘translated’ into a visual narrative.
Part of the seminar Kafkas Erzählungen: Texte und Comicadaptionen taught by Prof. Dr. Irmela Marei Krüger-Fürhoff and Anna Beckmann, M.A. (WiSe 2018/19, BA-Vertiefungsseminar 16665)
