Sag es mir Dienstag

“Tell me on Tuesday,” wrote Franz Kafka in a letter to Milena Jesenská. He planned to visit her on Tuesday, stopping in Vienna on the way to Prague. “It would be most sensible to tell you today where I would like to wait for you, but I would suffocate till we met.... Is there in the world, Milena, as much patience as is necessary for me? Tell me on Tuesday.” Astrid Ofner matched Kafka’s love letters to Milena with fragile images that permit the existence of that blank space, making it visible rather than filling it in.
