Japanese Contemporary Art
Opening on Thursday, 26 January 2023 from 7 to 10 p.m.
Duration of the exhibition: 27 January 2023 – 11 June 2023
With the exhibition NIPPON MANIA, the Kunsthaus in Kaufbeuren is turning its attention to a largely unexplored area of art in the Western hemisphere – Japanese contemporary art. On the basis of selected contemporary tendencies, the aim is to fathom which of the characterisations of Japanese art actually apply, which is described as perfectionistically smooth to designerly lacquered, essential in its minimalism, purist, hyper-aesthetic and stripped of any social pretensions. A view from close up into the far distance!
