DESCRIPTION

As part of Garage’s Debate club, participants will learn more about the works of Takashi Murakami and discuss contemporary Japanese culture.

Along with providing new knowledge about contemporary art, debate club meetings allow its members to discuss the artworks with each other and with Museum workers from the Education Department.

During the meetings, participants will learn the technique of audio descriptions (oral translation of images into verbal language), which is commonly used for working with blind and visually-impaired visitors. The process of verbal descriptions allows people without disabilities to notice details of artworks that are usually overlooked during a visit to an exhibition.

By juxtaposing Japanese prints and painting, contemporary Japanese animation and the works of Takashi Murakami, participants will try to answer the question, whether art can be divided into classical and contemporary, and culture—into mass and elite, or, are these categories just different names for the same consistent process.

The program also includes anime screenings accompanied by audio descriptions, followed by discussions.
