Organised by the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs and produced by Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV), the Japan Media Arts Festival Dortmund 2011 presents prominent representatives of Japanese art, entertainment, manga, animation and music.

After Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Vienna and Istanbul, Dortmund (Germany) is the location of the sixth Japan Media Arts Festival (JMAF) overseas exhibition in 2011.Interactive installations, games, photography, manga, animated films and music can be experienced in a varied exhibition for which the award winners of the last festivals in Tokyo were selected.

Many elements of the comprehensive festival program are presented for the first time in Germany. Well known artists such as the Oscar winning director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle) will meet the art of newly discovered talents like Shinya Uchida, an iPad-magician. The custom-built large-scale installation days and nights by Norimichi Hirakawa and Houxo Que is blending colour-intensive paintings with video projections. Naohiro Ukawa presents his project The Final Media Dommune in a specially arranged clubroom. The installation is connected to the actual Dommune club in Shibuya, Tokyo, via live Internet streaming. Miniature models of animation characters, animals and monsters from the last 50 years pay tribute to the legendary figurine-maker Kaiyodo. Festival visitors can interact with Jun Fujiki‘s highly innovative computer game, echochrome. The pocket-sized 3-D cinema i3DG by Jitsuro Mase and Tsutomo Nagae invites you to give it a try. The manga café offers a selection of current Japanese comics and anime series to rest while many more works of Japanese art and entertainment wait to be discovered.

Furthermore, a special film program features current and classic anime films on the big screen. Masaaki Yuasa’s films will be a special highlight. Three of his most important films will be screened: Kaiba, Mind Game and the new series The Tatami Galaxy. On 11 September at 18:00 the director himself will explain his work during a film talk. Moreover, the exhibition Proto Anime Cut on the 3rd floor of the Dortmunder U is dedicated to the theme of anime and makes up, together with the Japan Media Arts Festival Dortmund 2011, this year’s Japan focus of Hartware MedienKunstVerein.
