Presentation Title:

  • Nihon: A Project of Bauhaus-University Weimar



  • In the summer semester 2002, the media design course offered the project “nihon”. The students were given the opportunity to occupy themselves with all different aspects of Japan, the japanese way of life, the japanese media scene, japanese culture (contemporary and traditional) or german-japanese crosscultural communications.
