In the centre, the book The Castle of Franz Kafka replaces a brick and produces a ripple in the wall. This homonymous work by Jorge Mendez Blake generates a moving image. So much so that their images went viral in the social network under the title "The power of a book". The objective of this work is to analyse this oeuvre, especially concerning its construction of spaces from the concept of "dwelling" by Martin Heidegger, according to which not only space is physically inhabiting but also the same language is our home. Finally, having examined these aspects that include both the work of Blake and Kafka, we will return to the image in social networks to consider the senses contained in this reception of the work. Una pared de ladrillos en una sala de exposiciones. En el centro, el libro El castillo de Franz Kafka reemplaza un ladrillo y produce una ondulación en el muro. Esta obra homónima de Jorge Mendez Blake genera una imagen contundente. Tanto es así que sus imágenes se viralizaron en las redes bajo el título “El poder de un libro”. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar esta obra, sobre todo en relación a su construcción de espacios a partir del concepto de “habitar” de Martin Heidegger, según el cual no sólo habitamos físicamente un espacio, sino que el mismo lenguaje es nuestra morada. Finalmente, habiendo indagado en estos aspectos que incluyen tanto la obra de Blake como la de Kafka, volveremos a la imagen en las redes sociales para reflexionar acerca de los sentidos contenidos en esta recepción de la obra.
