After the Second World War, one of the largest Japanese communities in Western Europe emerged in Düsseldorf in the course of Japan’s economic expansion. At the same time, Düsseldorf developed into one of the most important centers for contemporary art. Examples include art movements from the 1960s to the 1980s such as Zero, Fluxus, Conceptual Art and Neo-Expressionism. Since then, not only Japanese businessmen but also Japanese artists have been attracted to Düsseldorf and NRW.
