Art in Japan After 3/11
Art is Powerful or Powerless? That's one of the questions that Tokyo Art Beat's Tomomi Sasaki and Xin Tahara try to answer in this presentation that looks at the Japanese art scene post 3/11. It was recorded at the last month's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 83.
Today's presentation was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 88, and sees Lucas Chirnside and Bianca Looney talk about "Public Maps" -- from Nihonbashi to Mars, six degrees of map making.
Cultural Exchange Through Humor and an Art Support Group in Indonesia
Presentations Luke Lawrence and Mika Karashima are from the British Council in Japan. 2012 is an exciting year for the UK, with the London Olympics and Paralympics games, as well as the Diamond Jubilee. In their presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93), that explain how the British Council in Japan has launched a campaign named the GREAT OGIRI to promote the usefulness of learning English and exchanging culture through humor. Raymond Malvin's presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 8) is about Kopi Keliling, a movement (in the form of a variety of creative activities) that believes that art and creativity can make changes that are meaningful to the Indonesian people. By juxtaposing art and creativity (both in terms of work and the person behind the work) to a wider community, it hopes to promote a desire to produce art. Kopi Keliling allows talented young visual artists to display their work through events held regularly, moving from one public space to another. Although the intent is to showcase the works of these artists, Kopi Keliling understands that without an audience these works are meaningless, and so another goal is to create interaction between the audience and the art (and artist). Posters We have just one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's an uncovered "blast from the past" from 2010, for Bialystok's very first PKN. Photos Today's gallery [Flickr] covers Springfield, Illinois' Vol. 6, which was held back in February. The city's next event, Vol. 8, is set for August 2 at the Capital City Bar & Grill Theatre. Calendar Tonight's (July 10) event takes the form of PKN Huancayo Vol. 10, and tomorrow you need to look to Nashville, for the city's Vol. 7.
