Treff Issue no. 1 brings together a small team of artists, writers and designers to instigate collaboration in the creative community. Under the theme ‘Japan: Individualism vs Community’, fashion designer Barbara Langendijk, visual poet Lucienne Venner and photographer Shinji Otani address the topic through multiple media.
The ever-developing idea of community in Japan reaches far beyond formal definitions. Reevaluating society’s traditions and norms, as we see it, happens through through-provoking visual investigations and example. From shimenawa to wabi-sabi, experience and read your way into understanding our theme and these three collaborator’s contribution to its investigation.
