<nettime-ann> exh. Proto ANIME Cut opens in Berlin, 20 January


Proto Anime Cut
Spaces and Visions in Japanese Animation

21 January - 6 March 2011, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin
Opening: Thursday, 20 January 2011, 19:00h

The exhibition Proto Anime Cut presents original drawings of the most important directors and illustrators of Japanese animated films.

The action-packed hero stories and the visionary science fiction of Japanese Anime are set in impressive worlds that are constructed in painstaking detail. Looking at the creative processes, the filmmakers appear as architectural dreamers who operate with virtuosity at the borders of credibility, fiction and utopia. The exhibition focuses on the development of these arenas of action and narrative scenarios. Numerous background paintings, storyboards, drafts, sources of inspiration and film excerpts provide insight into the working methods of the most successful animation artists of the last two decades. Proto Anime Cut presents them for the first time in Europe.

The exhibition includes work by Hideaki Anno (director, Neon Genesis Evangelion), Koji Morimoto (director, Dimension Bomb), Hiromasa Ogura (Art Director), Mamoru Oshii (director, Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell, Innocence) and Takashi Watabe (Layout).

The presented artists have played key roles in the development of Anime. By cooperating closely in different production studios in Tokyo they gave their distinctive signatures to many films and developed the prototypical Anime style.

The director Koji Morimoto and the background designer Hiromasa Ogura will attend the opening on 20 January in Berlin.
