Now Japan

Catalogue for Now Japan, showcasing contemporary Japanese art at Kunsthal Kade in Amersfoort. Printed on thin paper with only every other page full-colour.

A series of black and white photographs functions as a soft outro in the book. As the book concerns contemporary Japanese art and the notion of ‘superflat’ that artist Haruki Murakami coined to describe Japanese society we thought it a stirring gesture to also add, in the form of this set of holiday pictures, a western gaze that is only ever able to skim the surface of things.
