Proto Anime Cut
Spaces and Visions in Japanese Animation
21 January - 6 March 2011, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin
Opening: Thursday, 20 January 2011, 19:00h
The exhibition Proto Anime Cut presents original
drawings of the most important directors and
illustrators of Japanese animated films.
The action-packed hero stories and the visionary
science fiction of Japanese Anime are set in
impressive worlds that are constructed in
painstaking detail. Looking at the creative
processes, the filmmakers appear as architectural
dreamers who operate with virtuosity at
the borders of credibility, fiction and utopia.
The exhibition focuses on the development of
these arenas of action and narrative scenarios.
Numerous background paintings, storyboards,
drafts, sources of inspiration and film excerpts
provide insight into the working methods of the
most successful animation artists of the last two
decades. Proto Anime Cut presents them for the
first time in Europe.
The exhibition includes work by Hideaki Anno
(director, Neon Genesis Evangelion), Koji
Morimoto (director, Dimension Bomb), Hiromasa
Ogura (Art Director), Mamoru Oshii (director,
Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell, Innocence) and
Takashi Watabe (Layout).
The presented artists have played key roles in
the development of Anime. By cooperating closely
in different production studios in Tokyo they
gave their distinctive signatures to many films
and developed the prototypical Anime style.
The director Koji Morimoto and the background
designer Hiromasa Ogura will attend the opening
on 20 January in Berlin.
