Kafkanistan Exhibition

Kafkanistan - Tourism to Afghanistan

Kafkanistan - is a world created by Austrian multi-media artist Lukas Birk and Irish ethnographer Sean Foley. It explores present day tourism to conflict zones in Afghanistan and neighboring countries. The name Kafkanistan was inspired by Kafka’s The Castle, a book whose protagonist journeys through a world unknown to him, full of rumors and misleading stories. He's never sure whom to trust or what to believe in.

Photos, Videos, Installations, Performance and many many stories are waiting for you in Kafkanistan.
For those of you with children - I am sure they will have fun too. If you don't mind them asking
why tourists would collect wolf shit in Afghanistan or visit gun factories...
