A famous art historian and the museum director, Walter Koschatzky, contribute to the catalogue for the exhibition as below.


Art is a language that crosses borders. The problems of the people in our world find through the artist that condensing representation that is understood everywhere. 

Thus we welcome the exhibition of Chimei Hamada's graphic works arranged for us by the Japan Foundation and the Japanese Embassy in Vienna, in the certainty that we also understand the content of his works. 

The graphic arts have a great tradition in Japan, which we in our country also appreciate very much.
