The Invisible, the intermedia, the expanded: The Possibilities of Morning Images

As a preliminary event in the lead-up to the Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2018, we will hold an international symposium to gain a deeper understanding of the festival itself. The theme of this year’s festival is “the Invisible.” Invisibility is both a potential characteristic of moving images and a key to thinking about our times. Presented in tandem with the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum’s exhibit “Japanese Expanded Cinema Revisited” (August 15-October 15, 2017), this symposium features invited scholars in the fields of visual art and images and explores future possibilities by investigating the history of the image.
