An initiative by Berlin-based artists
A group of international artists unite for the Art Aucton
“Fujiyama in Red” to support the destitute people of Japan affected
by the March 11th earthquake and Tsunami. Works by participating artists
will be sold in an Art Auction held on April 15th at 7:30PM in the Main
Hall at Humboldt-Viadrina School of Governance in Berlin. The entire
proceeds from the Art Auction will be donated to an internationally
recognized relief organization in Japan.
The title of the Art Auction pays tribute to the film “Dreams.”
Made by Japanese director Akira Kurosawa in 1990, the film is organized
in chapters, one of which is called “Fujiyama in Red.” Given recent
catastrophes in the wake of the earthquake, a Japan devastated by radio-
activity does not seem like a nightmare far removed from reality.
The Tsunami in Japan has wreaked destruction not only to its local
communities, but its global consequences remain unforseeable.
Within days after the disaster struck, three Berlin-based initiators
decided to take action in an effort to aid the Japanese people in need.
The Art Auction “Fujiyama in Red” not only demonstrates solidarity with
the people in Japan, but it also is a call for an immediate end to nuclear
power. We wish to appeal to the world that sustainable energy is the only
solution for the future of our planet.
