The TURN art project generates artistic expression from encounters that transcend “differences.” In TURN meetings, we think about and discuss possibilities for the TURN project together with a range of guests.
At TURN Meetings in FY2020 we have focused on tactile sense and vision, with deafblind and deaf guests from a variety of fields providing deeper insights into ways of perceiving and expressing the world.
For this thirteenth TURN Meeting, we focus on hearing and physical sensation with our guests, blind soccer players Hiroyuki Komazaki and Kento Torii. What forms do their spatial understanding, various physical sensations and communication with others take? We explore this issue in discussion with our guests and TURN supervisor Katsuhiko Hibino, who have been familiar with soccer for many years.
*This event will be conducted in Japanese.
