The traveller to Japan inevitably delves into its cultural traditions. However, the country intrigues beyond its past. The exploration of the present proves just as fascinating – Japanese art and architecture especially receive international attention. In his role as the director of the Fondation Beyeler, Sam Keller recently visited the island country.

Teshima Art Museum, Teshima island.

SWISS Universe presents some of hisimpressions for those among you whoare already familiar with the Imperial Palace and the fish market in Tokyo, and the temples and gardens of Kyoto. They guide you through a diverse spectrum of artistic creation: onto the “art islands” Naoshima and Teshima, into the metropolis of Tokyo, across the country to the culture city of Kanazawa, and on to the Pacific coast.
