Mary Shelley was not yet twenty when she created Frankenstein in 1816 wrote 
a tale of mythical dimensions which hold us in fascination till today. The 
basic story of a scientist who seeks to create a man but instead makes a 
monster contains so many threads and narratives that this short story 
becomes a consice encyclopedia of what is it that makes us human. It is a 
horror story with gothic plot, a science fiction and a feminine critiqe. It 
is also a text about orientalism and colonial patterns of behavior, and it
is also a very funny story. Jung und Wenig took the story as an inspiration 
of an avalance of images,associations and occultic gestures. Doreet Harten 
dwells in the world of Shelley, and Jung und Wenig try to put order in the 
myriads of discourses the text and images offer us.
