Presentation: Claudia Siefen-Leitich
Date: Sun, Oct 06, 15:00
Venue: Raum D / Q21

Is there good or bad art? Can or must art be political, especially in relation to state funding institutions? And how important is communication with the public in today's media landscape? If the West demands very "Japanese" works by Japanese artists, why shouldn't they play the role of Japanese role models? Apart from the avant-garde, the point now is to present Japan itself to a foreign audience. Is this a reverse nationalist conversion in the service of foreigners? Since the 1970s, many Japanese artists have opted for this option. But instead of balancing the contradictions of the avant-garde, is this new effort even in danger of duplicating them?

In these works, HARADA has refined his technique and favoured its lightness through the medium. A feast!-- Goh HARADA was born in Tokyo in 1963 and studied electrical engineering at the renowned Keiō University. 1993-1999 Studies (master class) at the State Academy of Fine Arts - Städelschule -, Frankfurt/M, film and cooking/master class Prof. Peter Kubelka."
