The exhibit “Up yours | Tokyo punk & japanarchy” is the outcome of a five years long research work from the Japanese capital and “Sub Culture Club | Documenting street in London, Los Angels & Tokyo” is rather revealing on how these communities in such cities as London, Los Angeles and New York experienced this music genre and form of expression, in ter4ms of fashion, literature, art and film.

The exhibitions are on display at the Casa Comum (Reitoria) of the University of Porto. Entrance is free.
