#JapanRevisited202x: then-now-after has been conceived by the Austrian Cultural Forum Tokyo as a platform for artists from Austria to reimagine and revisit their memories, interpretations, and dreams associated with Japan. Building on more than 150 years of cultural exchange between Austria and Japan, the exceptional year 2020 seemed perfect for this experiment.
Following a Call for Submissions, a staggering 237 artists from or based in Austria have accepted the invitation and entered 223 projects in a vast variety of genres and forms of artistic expression.
A selection of about 100 works submitted to #JapanRevisited202x: then-now-after is featured in a curated audio-visual JOURNEY and virtual artist GALLERY: japanrevisited.at
This unique collection of artworks has also been published in print format. The projects presented allow us to glimpse the artists’ passion and curiosity for Japan and provide a panoramic view of Austria's dynamic and diverse contemporary art scene.
