"Since the 1950s, Bergner has produced scores of paintings on different subjects and themes, and also designed for the theater. Like Kafka’s writings, there is a strong theatrical dimension to his work, notable also in these drawings. For example, the buildings he drew for Kafka’s Castle could have been a sketch for a stage set; the outline of tumbled down houses representing the East European shtetl."
