Exhibition "nanoArt from Germany"

From October 25 - 28, 2011 the German Research and Innovation Forum Tokyo (DWIH Tokyo) together with the Center for Nanointegration of the University Duisburg-Essen (CeNIDE) presented the exhibition "nanoArt from Germany" at the University of Tsukuba. The event was opened by former German Federal President Christian Wulff.

"nanoArt from Germany" brought nano images, taken from the labs of German research institutions, to Japan. The 40 images show the ways in which materials have completely different and widely variable properties on the nano scale (one nanometer = one billionth of a meter). A kaleidoscope of textures and colors, nanoArt brings order and chaos, mountains and valleys, the heavens and hedgehogs, all invisible to the naked eye to life - in liquid, solid, luminescent, multi-colored atom arrangements and patterns. Nano particles were already used in the Middle Ages to manufacture colored stained-glass windows. Today, nanotechnology is used in everything from cancer detection and treatment to water purification systems.

Former German Federal President Christian Wulff gave a speech to students in the Japanese science city of Tsukuba where he emphasized that the German Research and Innovation Forum Tokyo serves to frame cooperation between Japan and Germany. His visit to Japan was one of the highlights of the celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of German-Japanese friendship.

The exhibition was presented a second time at the German Culture Centre in Tokyo in February 2012.
