Purpose of the residency

My intention is to map the current state of video art in Japan, fifty years after the "Open Circuits, an International Conference on the Future of Television", an event held at MoMA (NY) in 1974, which officially introduced video in museums and Japanese video art on the international scene. To this end, I will try to learn first-hand about the experiences and points of view of current video artists in order to finally develop an exhibition project that, following the model of "Open Circuits", will reopen the debate on the present and the future of video art in Japan.

Plan during the residency
  • Visiting specialized libraries that allow me to expand my compilation of bibliography on Japanese video art.
  • Visiting film archives that allow me to access the work of pioneering video artists in Japan
  • Conduct artist studio visits and interviews
  • Develop my exhibition project
