German Embassy: 160 Years of German-Japanese Friendship

Under the curation of TokyoDex, Osaka-based artists WHOLE9 created a mural on the outer wall of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany (Tokyo) to commemorate the 160th anniversary of German-Japanese relations.

The mural covers six themes: sports, music, economy/trade, science/medicine and culture. Each theme features portraits of pioneers and historical events that symbolize the continued relationship between both countries.

While this is our third time to curate a mural on the outside wall of the German Embassy, this is our largest installation to date, spanning over 80 meters in length.
