Proto Anime Cut Exhibition Berlin 2011


The Künstlerhaus Bethanien has a new exhibition, the Proto Anime Cut – Spaces and Visions in Japanese animation, with original drawings of the most important directors and illustrators of Japanese animated films.

The exhibition includes work by Hideaki Anno (director, Neon Genesis Evangelion), Haruhiko Higami (photographer), Koji Morimoto (director, Dimension Bomb), Hiromasa Ogura (art director), Mamoru Oshii (director, Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell, Innocence) and Takashi Watabe (layout).

It was fascinating to see how an anime artist has to draw an amazingly detailed picture on a really tiny piece of paper.

Sadly, all the descriptions were written in German language only, but I think if enough people ask for an English description, they will add on in the future.

Update: Descriptions in English language were available from February the 3rd 2011.

The exhibition was held until the 6th of March 2011 at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Kottbusser Str. 10 Berlin.
