The real metamorphosis (or: what Franz Kafka had no idea about)

Parallele Linien (Parallel lines)

The story about a young art student, who is practicing methods of awareness extension and, in course of them, gets beamed into the history of Vienna by a couple of shamen. He experiences old sagas and legends, then real criminal cases from the past, first passively, but then gradually in an active and passionate way. These actions are supposed to make him more sensitive and to improve his art but in the end they almost kill him. It's a homage to Vienna and to the Art.
