Wolfsmann (Wolfman) is Katharina Kranichfeld’s personal reinterpretation of the girl–wolf interaction best known through the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, which can be seen on many different levels, from rite of puberty and story of rebirth, through an allegory of male aggression and rape, to a young woman using her intelligence and wit to overcome an adversary and find her own power.

In Kranichfeld’s version the Wolfman does appear to prevail, which like so much of her work suggests that in her personal experience it is a violent male sexuality that retains the upper hand.
