The urban legend of the Nachtbockkäfer (literally “night-goat-beetle”) appears localized to contemporary Berlin, yet its iconography is in fact antique, with an origin extending to the coast of the Black Sea. By means of printed cut-outs, text, sound and animation, this exhibit traces the evolution of a specific but volatile figure through archetypal permutations, proposing an unending imaginary process.
