We are pleased to invite you to our poster exhibition and finissage "What matters now, Tokyo-Vienna" at the Lichthof B.

 

The exhibition shows posters, which are part of a cooperation project between Tama Art University and Klasse für Ideen. They address socially relevant topics and visualize the students' personal approaches.

  

 

Greetings from Tokyo:

In our second joint project Japanese and Austrian students address an array of social issues.

They designed posters showing their own concerns and individual forms of expression. You can see the characteristics of both schools in how to choose and visualize specific themes and the exhibition is a good opportunity to share these cultural differences with the viewer.

 

The exhibition takes place from November 13th to 30th at Tama Art University Tokyo and from November 27th to December 4th at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. 

 

The students communicated with each other, shared their work, produced posters and flyers and exhibit them on both locations. In addition, we produced video messages for each other which will be aired at the venue. Kilian Wittmann from Vienna created a logotype for the project. 

 

I am grateful for our friendship that made this program possible.

Greetings from Vienna:

What issues matter to students nowadays? What is important to them, what do they discuss? Do they find solutions for the problems they may face? Do young people in Japan engage with the same issues as their European counterparts?

 

In our second joint project, students in Tokyo and students in Vienna picked a theme that lays close to their hearts and developed ideas of how to express it using words and images. They addressed their issue with their very own design. 

 

As a result, we succeeded – again – to learn from each other,

and will – hopefully – stay as curious as ever.
