Artist Shimada Yoshiko is a proponent of feminist-informed art in Japan. On 28 May at PMQ, Shimada will discuss how her artworks reflect on cultural memory.

Talk by artist and researcher Shimada Yoshiko on alternative art education in post-1968 Japan on 30 May, 2018 at AAA

After the 1968 student movement, the radical publishing company Gendaishicho-sha founded Gendaishicho-sha Bigakkō in Tokyo. Bigakkō was envisioned by its founder, Ishii Kyoji, as a “movement to change the world by changing the way the world is perceived.” On 30 May at AAA, Shimada will host a talk introducing the two principles of this alternative art school —“tewaza” (hand skills), close and full “master-pupil” relationships—and how each artist tried to embody these principles in their own unique methodology; Shimada will also discuss alternative art education strategies which are relevant for education nowadays.

Talk by artist and researcher Shimada Yoshiko on alternative art education in post-1968 Japan on 30 May, 2018 at AAA

Shimada was one of the curators of the exhibition 'Anti-Academy' held at @john_hansard_gallery in 2013. The exhibition looked at three radical educational models in Japan, the United States and Denmark in the 1960s, including the alternative art school Gendaishicho-sha Bigakkō, where major Japanese artists and cutting-edge scholars taught with their own methodologies.
On 30 May at AAA, Shimada will discuss the pedagogy of Bigakkō and alternative art education. Register now: https://bit.ly/2KIFaSf

Talk by artist and researcher Shimada Yoshiko on alternative art education in post-1968 Japan on 30 May at AAA

Shimada Yoshiko identifies herself as a feminist and art activist, exploring themes of cultural memory and the role of women in the Asia-Pacific War. In recent years, Shimada has been researching on art and politics in post-1968 Japan.
1968 is a year of turbulence in Japan. Students across the country staged protests against the US imperialism in Japan and Vietnam, and demanded university reforms against elitist hierarchies. Demonstrations escalated and campuses of hundreds of universities and thousands of high schools were occupied. In the aftermath of the movement, intellectuals started looking at education as a way to change one’s perception, leading to the rise of alternative pedagogy.

On 30 May at AAA, Shimada will give a talk discussing the alternative art school Gendaishichō-sha Bigakkō in relation to the sociopolitical and cultural context of post-1968 Japan, and relevant alternative pedagogy nowadays. Sign up now: https://bit.ly/2KIFaSf
