Japanese Contemporary Art

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!

Micheko Gallery was founded in 2010 by the Japanese art teacher Keiko Tanaka and the German-Italian entrepreneur Michele Vitucci. The focus of Micheko is on contemporary art from Japan. The gallery program includes all of fine art forms, as well as the applied arts of Japan from the 20th and 21st century. Micheko presents new and established artistic positions and presents new perspectives of Japanese art for private as well as institutional and corporate collections.
