On this project, ASAKUSA invited one of the most celebrated artists in the art world, Anton Vidokle to Tokyo, for him to shoot a new film set in Japan. Vidokle is also known as a founder of “e-flux”, publishing platform and archive, artist project, curatorial platform, and enterprise which was founded in 1998 and has more than 90,000 subscribers. The art projects produced and/or disseminated by e-flux describe strains of critical discourse surrounding contemporary art, culture, and theory internationally. Its monthly publication e-flux journal has produced essays commissioned since 2008 about cultural, political, and structural paradigms that inform contemporary artistic production. The project introduced Vidkle’s former activities and works during his stay for shooting.
ASAKUSA is a 40-square-meter exhibition venue which used to be an old residential building, for contemporary art programs committed to advancing curatorial collaboration and practices.
