Going Global. Japanese Culture from Edo to Emoji

How has Japanese art and culture been appreciated, translated and appropriated and how has Japan used its ‘cool’ factor to project a national image to the world?

Inspired by the journey of Hokusai’s ‘The great wave off Kanagawa’ from Edo print to emoji, take a look at the enduring influence of Japanese art and culture in the world from multiple perspectives.
