Agenda: June 28 - July 11 / feat. "BAU"

Note: This time the agenda covers two weeks.

This fortnight’s feature:
"BAU" by Takashi Suzuki at radlab exhibition projects*)
Shown in a tremendous variety, you will surely recognize the cleaning sponge you use. But are the pictured sponges still the same mundane everyday life stuff? Stripped of their function and architecturally assembled -- "BAU" is German and means "building" -- they look like skyscrapers, castles and churches, but of unusual quality: Soft, vibrantly coloured and playful. A glimpse of utopia.
*) in cooperation with Super Window Project

For more exhibitions and events about art and design in Osaka rely on FLAG.

On the Agenda are events in Kyoto - and also in Osaka and Kobe - that I'm interested in and plan to attend.
Although the list isn't meant to be complete, I hope it provides some valuable tips for those interested in art and design in Kansai.
