VIENNA. With its apparently carefree attitude to nakedness and sexuality East Asian shunga („spring pictures”) convey a much freer attitude to sexual morals than has been instilled in us in Europe. The MAK - Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art (Stubenring 5, 1010 Vienna) - exhibition SHUNGA: Erotic Art from Japan (until 5 March 2017) focuses on the artistic quality of the explicitly erotic color woodblock prints, which despite long prohibition by the Japanese government advanced to become a mass phenomenon. Individual sheets, albums, and books by renowned masters such as Suzuki Harunobu (ca. 1725-1770), Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) and Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806) - mostly loans from the Leopold private collection - offer a representative and in-depth view in the MAK of this frequently tabooed facet of Japanese art history. Contemporary nude photographs by Nobuyoshi Araki (b. 1940) act as a connecting link to the present day, announced mak.at.
