This is the finale of the Bridge-Building Series, which highlight several art projects from all across Japan, profiling the initiatives through discussions with their respective organizers. In the series, each guest provides an insightful look at how exploring the “memories of the land” through art projects reveals the contours and character of the Japan we know today.
The last session also broadens the scope of the program to East Asia as a whole. Kenichiro Egami, who covers the “place-building” efforts shaping shared spaces in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and elsewhere in Asia, offers a captivating perspective on the theme of “place building in East Asia” by discussing how networks uniting the people involved in these efforts can unlock the potential for cultural and artistic cooperation in the region.
