Hiroshima / Nagasaki - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Japanese Artists
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton and Tsugu Tamenaga
A special collection that joins the Imago Mundi Japanese collection to take a creative look at a future of hope and, together, reflect on our capacity to bear witness. The 133 works by the artists from Hiroshima and Nagasaki explore new stories of the world, from a scenario in which History stood still; from a possible point of no return that placed the very existence of the human race at risk. Then they move on, thanks to the formidable and universal power of Art to heal wounds and reconcile conflict.
HIROSHIMA / NAGASAKI. Contemporary Japanese Artists is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
