    参加作家の多くは、これまでにLe Petit Mignonで展示/アートZINEのリリースをしています。
    また、Le Petit Mignonは、日本の若い世代が大量消費社会に立ち向かい新たな道を見付け出し、福島での災害にもかかわらず”安全”について国民を騙し続けている政治家への抗議行動を起こすことを激励します。

    Le Petit Mignon is a record label, a publishing company and a gallery focused on DIY and underground art and grafic design, hosted by the Berlin based specialist of unusual and experimental music Staalplaat. With exhibitions showing works by the most creative contemporary artists from all around the world, collections of handmade & printed artbooks, fanzines and comics as well as limited editions of silkscreened posters and t-shirts.

    Simultaneously to “My bell-end ain’t at the top of my shaft” exhibition in Tokyo, ”My shaft ain’t at the bottom of my bell-end” present another selection of works by artists and grafic designers involved in the underground art scene in Europe. Most of them were, at some point in the past, invited by Le Petit Mignon to present their work on the walls of Berlin based record shop Staalplaat and offered their contribution and their printing skills to a still expanding series of publications released by Le Petit Mignon.
    While Japan is technologically one of the most advanced nation in the world, the country is extremely isolated and communications quite often seem to stop at its borders. This paradoxical and unfair phenomenon has been amplified by the nuclear disaster occurring in Fukushima last year. Through the sensibility of Europe based artists transcribed on paper, this exhibition aim to overcome the language barrier and distances, build and maintain an alternative communication bridge and open doors to future engaged collaborations between Europe and Japan.
    On this occasion, Le Petit Mignon also wants to encourage Japanese youth to rise against consumerism, build an alternative society and get involved in actions against the criminal politicians governing their country who, just one year after Fukushima’s disaster, keep on lying and endangering the safety of Japanese people.
