The cultural and artistic support program “Mercedes-Benz Art Scope” initiated in 1991, has enabled through its artist-in-residence program a cultural exchange between Japanese and German artists in the cities of Tokyo and Berlin since 2004. The Hara Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo has been an exhibition partner ever since. “Visions of Exchange” at the Daimler Contemporary presents works from the last eleven scholarship recipients, which arose within the scope of the program supplemented by other loans. The works of painting, sculpture, photography, installation and Video reflect individual experiences of first foreign urban spaces and open a dialogue on singularity / foreignness and transnational cultural concepts.
