Before and After Superflat: A Short History of Japanese Contemporary Art 1990 – 2011 by Adrian Favell (Blue Kingfisher Ltd / 2011)
'How did Takashi Murakami, Yoshimoto Nara and 'Superflat' rise to become the dominant artistic vision of Japan today? What lies behind their image of a childish and decadent society unable to face up to reality? Before and after Superflat tells the true story of the Japanese art world since 1990, its struggle to find a voice amidst Japan's decline and the rise of china, and the responses of other artists, less well know outside of Japan, who offer alternative visions of its troubled present and future.'
