Covering a broad spectrum of issues and styles, the anime of Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989) consistently combines seemingly-cute characters with powerful post-nuclear sentiments. Familiar yet strange, European yet Asian, kitsch yet elegant - Tezuka's iconic animated work affords the viewer an insight into the perplexing formal mutations and weird narrative contortions which typify postwar Japanese culture.
Curated by Philip Brophy
