Every year the Japan Media Arts Festival fascinates thousands of visitors by a top-class programme of vanguard media art, entertainment, anime and manga in Tokyo. The most ambitious and excellent works win the award and will be exhibited all over the world. After Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Vienna and Istanbul the Dortmunder U is the next location for the 6th Japan Media Arts Festival Over Sea Exhibition. The prize winners of the last festival were chosen for this show. Among these awardees are well known artists like the director Hayao Miyazaki and newly discovered talents like Shinya Uchida, an iPad-magician. Current anime and milestones of the Japanese film genre can also be enjoyed as part of the broaden film programme. These films are seldom showed on a big screen in Germany.
The Japan Media Arts Festival is part of the focus at Dortmunder U in 2011 of dealing with exclusive representatives of Japanese contemporary art and pop culture. At the same time the HMKV presents the exhibition Proto Anime Cut – spaces and visions in Japanese animation with original drawings of the most important directors and illustrators of Japanese animated films on the 3rd floor.
