There are certainly many ways to deal with the term ‘Kafkaesque’ the common name for the atmosphere Czech writer Franz Kafka (1883-1924) created in his works. The art practices made within the context of the dissertation are one of the methods. The artworks that have been emerged during the dissertation study are examined under four different titles. The first part, The World That Fascinates Kafka: The Office Layout, is based on an art practice that focuses on satirizing the bureaucracy. This part deals with Kafka’s relationship with business life, the general working principles and leisure time. The second part, The Rise of the Void or The Involvement of Purification, scrutinize the works which brought novelty to art history in terms of their strategy of not exhibiting, in other words, their strategy intended to construct a difference almost nonexistent. This part has been evaluated with a dissertation practice including museum criticism which has been created based on the tendencies of the artists who tried to get rid of all the weight of the countless works created throughout the art history. The aforementioned dissertation practice relates to Kafka’s visit to the museum to see the void left behind by the absence of Mona Lisa. The third part, The Kafkaesque Space and Atmosphere, is Kafka’s style relating to space, a primary element in the construction of his works. This part examines the connections that are reflected on and from the space while treating the problems that Kafka presented in his work. The interior-exterior contradiction in spatial construction and high angle perspectives on space and geography are scrutinized. The final part, Kafkaesque’s Relationship with History and Law, is about the ideology of writing shaped with the beginning of using writing. After all, The Trial refers to a file composed of sheets and writing. The art practices in this part analyze the opinions considering heroic stories that build nations’ history as total wrack, together with Kafka’s Before the Law story.
