The COVID-19 outbreak has triggered bouts of racism and violence against Chinese and Asian people in Europe and elsewhere. Indeed, this pandemic has made xenophobic sentiments and racism more visible, as evidenced by the Black Lives Matter movement that followed the death of George Floyd.

Last year, Japan and Austria celebrated the 150th anniversary of their diplomatic relations and long-standing exchanges. The beginning of this partnership was marked by the 1869 Treaty of Amity, Commerce and Navigation. Despite this friendly celebration, this treaty perfected the unequal conditions that existed between Japan and other Western countries, due to the most-favoured-nation treatment. After this treaty, unfair articles, such as extraterritorial rights, were applied to Austria as well as other countries. Five countries had an advantageous treaty with Japan, including the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Russia and the Netherlands.

Following this commemorative year, the aim of exhibition everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of the planet is to examine the contradictory feelings towards foreignness, political identity and post-colonial or post-war issues from the late 19th century to today. This project also deals with how artists interpret desire, passion and love for foreign cultures, artifacts and lands. Indeed, both are polarized emotions and reactions towards Other cultures. Since human being started to search for a New World, there have been numerous things people want from the other side of the planet.

The subjects of the works not only include Austria and Japan but also Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil, China and the United States.
