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), Haruhiko Higami (photographer), Koji Morimoto (director, Dimension Bomb), Hiromasa Ogura (art director), Mamoru Oshii (director, Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell) 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.

Der 1.000.050ste Geburtstag der Kunst im Museum der Unerhörten Dinge, Berlin

Programm Freitag 18.1.2013

Kuratiert von Andreas Broeckmann (Les Jardins des Pilotes) und Miya Yoshida

18:45 Traumfilme der „Coney Island Amateur Psychoanalytic Society“ (1926-1972)
Die Mitglieder der „Coney Island amateur-psychoanalytischen Gesellschaft“ stellten ihre Träume in Filmen dar, die sie einander jedes Jahr im Rahmen eines Traumfilm-Wettbewerbs zeigten. (Mit Dank an Zoe Beloff)

19:30 Einführung, Roland Albrecht, Andreas Broeckmann, Miya Yoshida

19:45 Ayumi Matsuzaka: „All My Cycles“ (Projektpräsentation, siehe unten, Ausstellung)

22:00 Dick Verdult: „Dibujos Pasajeros“ (Diaschau, Zeichnungen mit Musik)
„Die ‚Dibujos Pasajeros‘ („Passagier-“ oder „En-passant-Zeichnungen“) entstehen auf meinen Flugreisen in Lateinamerika. Sie werden, denke ich, auf dreierlei Weise genossen: wegen der Art und Weise, wie sie gezeichnet sind, und was sie zeigen, aber auch von der Person, die beim Zeichnen im Flugzeug neben mir sitzt und die sich deutlich bemüht zu zeigen, dass sie nicht guckt und nicht verblüfft ist.‘‘

Ausstellung

Sandra Kuttner: „In der Zeit-Lupe“ Installation, 2001/2013
Die „amerikanischen Bilder“ von Sandra Kuttner basieren auf Ereignissen, über die in den Medien berichtet wurde. Das veröffentlichte Material wird in die ‚entschleunigte Zone‘ ihrer Sammelbücher geleitet und in Zeichnungen, Texten und experimentellen Szenarien unter die Zeit-Lupe genommen.

Ayumi Matsuzaka: „All my Cycles“ Mixed Media, 2010-
Matsuzaka is interested in the idea of making one‘s own personal soil and investigates methods of micro-composting. She presents a compost starting kit that adopts a method called „Terra Preta“ of Amazonian black soil, and exhibits a documentation of the process – from making fertilizer out of her own excreta and planting vegetables in the fertilizer to harvesting them to eat.

Eric Muzzy: „how blue ? how sad ? how small ? how white ? how far ?“ Photographien, 2012
Eric Muzzy ist Tischler, Filmemacher, Programmierer, Photograph. Er geht diesen Beschäftigungen in keiner besonderen Reihenfolge nach.

ATAK was established by Keiichiro Shibuya in 2002 as a collective including creators from various fields, such as music, design and fashion. As a music label ATAK releases Japanese and international cutting edge electro-acoustic works. The work of ATAK is deeply influenced by the music of Pan sonic and Yasunao Tone.

Shibuya released his first solo album entitled “ATAK000 keiichiro shibuya” in 2004. With an extremely dense and rich sound, focusing on tone and rhythm the album was a milestone for Shibuya’s musical development.

Pan sonic was formed in 1992 in Turku, Finland by Mika Vainio (1963) and Ilpo Väisänen (1963). Pan sonic released more than ten albums, a slew of EPs and a DVD, and have collaborated with legends such as Alan Vega, Barry Adamson and David Cunningham. The group has become one of the best known Finnish electronic music groups, renown for their harshly minimalist, high volume live performances. Pan sonic’s concert with ATAK is one of few appearances in 2009.

Yasunao Tone was born in Tokyo in 1935 and resides in New York since 1972. He is co-founder of Group Ongaku, an original member of the Japanese Fluxus movement, and a legend in electronic music. Tone will perform his piece Paramedia Mix 08 which is an instance of his long term musical project dedicated to the exploratory use of manipulated CDs. Since the 80ies Tone develops his unique musical aesthetic, based on scratched CDs and their use as a medium for live performances.

evala is a sound artist based in Tokyo and a regular member of ATAK. In 2004 he founded the independent label “port”. His first album “initial” with its strong and sensitive sounds had a great impact on the electronic music scene in Japan. evala’s signature style is an uncompromisingly artificial editing process of field recorded material. For ATAK NIGHT 4 he will also program the visuals for Shibuya’s live set.

ATAK NIGHT 4 is a project of ATAK, Les Jardins des Pilotes, and club transmediale.
Supported by the Japan Foundation.

A multi-channel sound installation by Keiichiro Shibuya and Takashi Ikegami.

filmachine in Berlin, February 2008. Photo by Michael Sauer.

Three circles of loudspeakers are suspended from the ceiling above an abstract landscape. On entering the space, the visitor starts the composition with a button at the center of the piece, triggering an immersive audio-visual experience in a 3-dimensional soundscape, enhanced by a specially designed LED lighting system. For the exhibition in Berlin, Keiichiro Shibuya creates a new composition which is presented here as a world premiere. It is based on research of complex systems and makes use of cellular automata and logistic maps for sound synthesis.

filmachine was developed and premiered at Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media in 2006. The international premiere in Berlin was produced by les jardins des pilotes for transmediale.08 in cooperation with ATAK, Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (YCAM), Tokyo National University of Fine Arts & Music Film and New Media, sponsored by Musikelectronic Geithain and color kinetics Japan, supported by Agency of Cultural Affairs Japan.

The filmachine team is:

Composition: Keiichiro Shibuya (ATAK)
Generating sound patterns and textures: Takashi Ikegami (Tokyo University)
Multiphonic 3-dimensional programming: evala (ATAK, port)
Programme development: Yuta Ogai (Tokyo University / Ikegami lab)
Production management: Maria Shibuya (ATAK)
Technical support: Takayuki Ito (YCAM)

Curated by Kazunao Abe (YCAM)

filmachine in Berlin was curated by Stefan Riekeles (JdP).

Team Berlin: Rüdiger Koch (technical manager Berlin, Podewils’sches Palais), Jörg Schildbach (Lichtblick Bühnentechnik), Jens Glasa (audio-studiotechnik-glasa).
