We are a group of artists, graphic designers and art connoisseurs, who are looking forward to organizing an international poster exhibition in association with some International organizations of repute. The goal of this exhibition is to offer Japan a hand of support so that the nation can recover from the aftermath of the triple disaster. For this, we wish to invite artists, painters, graphic designers etc. for their contribution on the issue of the recent tragic events in Japan. The purpose of this exhibition is to provide the cross-cultural understanding for the victims of the triple disaster in March 2011 to give a form of expression. For this, we have invited designers from all over the world to participate and for their contribution on the issue of the recent tragic events in Japan.
We aspire to show our artistic solidarity by means of these exhibitions which will serve as a bridge between various cultures and nationalities. We hope to reflect on the disparities and juxtapositions of thoughts and perceptions and all our exhibitions will aim at capturing a collage of artistic diversity and multiculturalism and show international solidarity. Also, we want to memorize the disaster in the cultural memory.
A jury of renowned personalities has selected the 100 best posters and amongst them, 6 posters have received the recognition and award. All posters were exhibited on December 1st, 2011 at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf and will be shown in a series of exhibitions worldwide.
We will continue to build up a network between Osaka University and students at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf and Dortmund, which will bring the young designers closer to the Japanese art and culture and also encourage cultural exchange and serve as a platform for new ideas.
