CODED CULTURES Associated Event: Japan Media Arts Festival - Anime Screenings: May 27th - June 07th, 2009, daily 10 am - 8 pm - May 22nd, 2009

In cooperation with “CODED CULTURES - Exploring Creative Emergences” the excellent animation works, awarded by the 11th Japan Media Arts Festival, will be presented in May 2009.

The screening event is taking place at the former Net Culture Space at MuseumsQuartier Vienna.
The Japan Media Arts Festival has been an annual event in Tokyo, Japan since 1997. Its aim is to promote the creation and development of media arts. The Festival highlights creative works not only in art but also in the fields of entertainment, animation and manga. Besides the annual exhibition in Tokyo, the overseas exhibition of this festival is held once a year. The forthcoming exhibition will take place in September 2009 at MQW. For the first time, those media art works will be shown to a European audience as the cutting edge culture with the topic “OTO” meaning “Sound” in Japanese. We hope the audience in Austria enjoys this selection and and are looking forward to intensify the cultural relations between Japan and Austria during the Austria – Japan Year 2009.
