Dr. Reiko Tomii, "Wilderness as Method, Contemporaneity as Method"
Dr. Reiko Tomii is an independent scholar and co-director of PoNJA-GenKon. The lecture is based on her latest publication, Radicalism in the Wilderness: International Contemporaneity and 1960s Art in Japan (MIT Press, April 2016). Dr. Tomii will outline two basic concepts: "wilderness" and "contemporaneity" as key methodological frameworks to construct local and global art histories.
