» Café 1916 Award

Eleven stories starring creators from very different eras and lands for whom the same fate awaits: the fate dictated by their fears and desires.

Underhand scheming in a 15th century Belgian monastery. The flowering of Vienna in the inter-war years. The Paris of the impressionists. The volatile Japan of the Edo period. Rome at the onset of the 19th century. 17th century Venice. A séance in a village on the Costa Brava. The shameful daydreams of a still life painter. A Polish Jew lost in an endless summer. A family secret encrypted in a distant landscape. The body as the final frontier of the artistic experience.
