The Institute of Japanese Studies and the Japanese-German Center Berlin kindly invite you to join a gallery talk and a lecture by Professor Karen Nelson (Dean of the School of Architecture at Boston Architectural College) on the exhibit ‘Obento and Built Space: Japanese Boxed Lunch andArchitecture’ on June 27, 2 pm at the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB) (http://www.jdzb.de/).

 

What do bento boxes, the Japanese portable and compartmentalized lunchbox and architecture have in common? It seems a great deal: planning the use of space, attention to seasonality, movability, and aesthetic sensibility. Karen Nelson, Dean of the School of Architecture at Boston Architectural College in Boston, Massachusetts will give a lecture and slide presentation on some of these common themes. Following the lecture there will be a gallery walk-through of the exhibit on Obento and Built Space (http://www.jdzb.de/veranstaltungen/detail/id/1852/) with displays of bento boxes, with  Karen Nelson and co-curator Debra Samuels, Japanese food specialist. This exhibit first opened at the Boston Architectural College in February 2015. It traveled to Berlin this spring. Drinks and snacks will be served.

 

Registration is not required, but it would be helpful if you let us know if you are interested in joining the event. Please contact: cornelia.reiher@fu-berlin.de
