With the Nippon Chinbotsu manga series which is about the sinking of Japan after a series of earthquakes, the manga-ka (manga or comic artist, cartoonist) Tokihiko Ishiki produced a megaseller that has remained popular until today. The MAK exhibition Nippon Chinbotsu. Japan Sinks. A Manga takes this well-known example as a basis to explore the visual aesthetics and graphic-art quality of manga, which have risen into a mass phenomenon of contemporary culture far beyond the isles of Japan.
