The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MKG), Germany, puts Japanese photography of the 20th century on display. On view from April 5 until July 10, 2016.
The exhibition “Japanese Daydreams” presents around thirty works by a selection of Japanese photographers, which are drawn from the collection at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MKG). They cover the development of surrealist/poetic photography in Japan in the period between the 1930s and the 1980s.
The focus of this collection of photographs from Japan is on free creative work with the medium. The works chosen for the exhibition show how in Japan the stylistic tendencies in international art were amalgamated with Japanese artistic traditions.
With works by Kanbei Hanaya, Masamichi Harada, Hiroki Nishiura, Satoshi Saito, Toshio Shibata, Irie Taikichi, and Shoji Ueda.
