50 years after the 1968 movement the Goethe-Institut Tokyo presents a series of symposia, exhibitions, workshops, as well as a film series, and asks at what point do our societies stand today?
On three dates we present three different film performances and talks with the artists.
The first performance will be from Takahiko Iimura.
Takahiko Iimura has been a defining figure in experimental and independent film in Japan since the early 1960s. In the late 1960s, his work was first presented in Germany. Through a stay in Berlin in 1973, Iimura increasingly developed into an interface for the exchange between the artistic avant-garde in Japan and Germany. The film performance in the Goethe-Institut sheds light on the performative aspect of Iimura’s filmic works.
