Review of the exhibition Japanomania in the Nordic Countries, 1875-1918 which opened at the Helsinki Ateneum Museum February 18, 2016. The exhibition examined over 400 works in all media that revealed how the mania for all things Japanese shaped Nordic aesthetics at the turn of the century. The exhibition goes on to Oslo and Copenhagen through 2017, and it has a catalogue published in five separate language editions with the English version being distributed by Yale University Press.
