Nobuyoshi Araki - one of my favourite reliable providers of NSFW web content - is the main attraction of a Japanese-themed show that opened today at Kestnergesellschaft in Hannover/DE and will be on view until May 12, 2008.

In the exhibition entitled Araki meets Hokusai - The Art of Japan, the public will get to see some of the most recent photographs from Araki's Bondage series alongside classical Japanese woodcuts.

Sounds a bit random to me, but I guess the concept could nevertheless prove interesting if the juxtapositions are carefully chosen.

On show: February 22 - May 12, 2008

Address: Kestnergesellschaft, Goseriede 11, 30159 Hannover/DE, tel: +49 511 70120 0 | Directions

Catalogue: Published by Kehrer Verlag
