"The world of Manga" in the Wereldmuseum Rotterdam - opposite the cruise terminal
The makers of Samurai now confront you with the terrifying guards of Buddhist philosophy, bonded with the fierce and powerful heroes of Street Fighter. Shinkichi Tajiri’s Machines lead you into the enchanting world of MANGA.
The versatility of manga art has never been shown so clearly. The Japanese Buddhist guards introduce the philosophy of manga in comics, anime and games. When after the fascinating story of the fighting machines of Shinkichi Tajiri, the beauty of manga art unfolds, the mysticism of manga can be grasped. The innovative photo art by Anderson & Low raises the question: are these manga inspired dreams of people, or people inspired dreams of manga? Their project Manga Dreams constitutes a major part of the exhibition.
An entire room is dedicated to the artwork of the internationally acclaimed anime Wolf Children Ame and Yuki from director Mamoru Hosoda.
The world of MANGA is extraordinary and it is expected that the success of previous exhibitions as Samurai and Future Pass will be surpassed.
Until the 14th of January.
