This installation shows how a simple book can shake the established order

The power of words. An expression that perfectly summarizes the installation of the artist Jorge Méndez Blake, which demonstrates in a simple but powerful way how a simple book can shake the established order. A striking visual metaphor for which the artist has inserted a copy of the book The Castle by Franz Kafka, under a brick wall deformed by the mere presence of this book.

This book was of course not chosen at random, since it deals with the alienation of the individual in front of a bureaucracy that cut off all contact with the population. This artwork by artist Jorge Méndez Blake, soberly entitled The Castle, was presented in 2007, but strongly expresses a timeless idea.
