As a sponsoring partner Bento Graphics provided the bilingual (English/Japanese) website CMS implementation for the You Are Here – Berlin Tokyo Festival.
Part of the project was the coding of standards compliant & SEO friendly XHTML/CSS templates, implementation of AJAX driven slideshow and newsletter signup form integration. The slideshow in the background of the website can be fed with a live stream of images and will be used to display photos from the festival venues in 2011.

YouAreHere festival: Berlin Tokyo
A 30-day art festival of Berlin in Tokyo.
You Are Here: Berlin Tokyo, in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT), the Goethe Institute in Tokyo and the Japanisch Deutsches Zentrum Berlin (JDZB).
YOU ARE HERE: BERLIN-TOKYO is an art event taking place in October 2011 over the course of 30 days and nights, across multiple venues throughout Tokyo, bringing a diverse cast of Berlin-based creative practitioners to Tokyo, in order to stimulate existing connections.
By bringing selected artists and art practitioners from the Berlin art scene to Tokyo, and exhibiting their work as well as staging platforms for exchange (workshops, discussion panels, publications and interactive programs), we aim to highlight the mutual reciprocities of these two dynamic cities while encouraging a durable exchange of creative processes and various modes of art production.
In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Japanese-German diplomatic relationships, and within collaboration with Goethe Institute, YOU ARE HERE: BERLIN-TOKYO takes part in the celebration program, initiates a dialogue and aims to be a platform for cultural exchange between the two cities. YOU ARE HERE will strengthen the preexisting creative bond between Berlin and Tokyo.
