News from Berlin - The eternal theme of Japanese art, which lies in the connection and the interaction between modernity and nature, between urbanization and ecology, is still tormenting the creative spirits of Japanese artists. Paintings illustrating this conflict between City and Nature, but also the inspiring cohabitation between both habitats, are brought to Berlin under the form of a multicultural exhibition. It combines the works of artists from Japan, Germany, but also from Greece, where the exhibition actually took place for the first time in the summer of 2013.

The project is called “PHYSIS – Berlin 2014” and is taking place at the Japanisch-Deutsches Zentrum Berlin. There you will be able to appreciate the works of artists like Amelie Conrad, Gunnar Conrad, Vasilis Ioakeimidis, Kanako Ishii and Takehito Koganezawa. As part of the exhibition you will also be able to enjoy a dance performance by Saori Hala and Aya Irizuki on May 23rd  at 19:00.

The event is organized in celebration of the 20 year anniversary of the partnership between the cities of Berlin and Tokyo. It started on 10. April and will continue until 30. May, so if you hurry you can still have the chance to enjoy it!

The exhibition is open from 10:00. to 17:00  Monday through Thursday and from 10:00. to 15:30 on Fridays.

Admission is free!
