Näyttely: The Ban Factor / Yōkais, ghosts and sexy monsters

The Ban Factor

On 1962 July 27, the front pages of newspapers in Rangoon, Myanmar, mentioned the official announcement for the state’s ban on supernatural, witchcraft-plotted and ghost films. The film posters, handbills and positive stills that are displayed in this exhibition include films that are banned completely or have plots that have been first heavily censored because of the horrific and/or supernatural content.

Yōkais, ghosts and sexy monsters

Sexy monsters live in the peculiarly twisted universe of Toshio Saeki’s art. Toshio Saeki (佐伯俊男, 1945 – 2019) was a Japanese illustrator and painter, known for his erotic works. Yōkai (妖怪) means supernatural spirit beings or demons in Japanese folklore.
