In the year 2014, Japan and Switzerland celebrate 150 years of diplomatic relations between them. To mark this occasion, Museum Haus Konstruktiv is collaborating with the Japan Foundation to realize the exhibition project "Logical Emotion – Contemporary Art from Japan". On the basis of the constructivist-concrete and conceptual art that constitutes the focus of Museum Haus Konstruktiv's content, director Sabine Schaschl and Kenjiro Hosaka from the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, are curating a comprehensive group exhibition of Japanese contemporary art. The presentation revolves around logic and its supposed counterpart: emotion. "Logical Emotion" shows a broad spectrum of artistic media: from painting to sculptural installation, video, photography and architecture, through to applied art and manga drawings; the exhibition integrates the most recent history of Japanese art and combines internationally renowned artists with emerging young artists.
