Hi everyone,

The exhibition COOL JAPAN has been extended so let's go!

Pokémon, Hello Kitty, robots and samurai: they are world-renowned icons of Japanese image culture. Japan is known for centuries-old traditions and at the same time it's hip and happening; with striking visual expressions and a freaky fantasy culture. Protected content presents the great exhibition COOL JAPAN - Global fascination. This exhibition shows the popularity of contemporary Japan and places it in a historical context.
Check out the trailer for the exhibition below:

Historical and Contemporary
COOL JAPAN brings everything together: from the recognizable Japanese horror to cute fashion from the streets of Tokyo. Protected content shows with historical pieces from its world-renowned Japanese collection that the icons are now in a long tradition. In addition to the work of Katsushika Hokusai, known as the Rembrandt of Japan, contemporary art is also represented. Central viewfinder is the four-meter-high Uki-Uki painting by Matsuura Hiroyuki, in which old (traditional kimono) and new (manga) elements accurately represent the core of the exhibition.

As always, it is recommended to purchase the tickets in advance:
