第2回対話 芸術とプロパガンダArt and Propaganda

[2019.11.16 - 14:30 - 17:00]



Acts of propaganda have played a significant role, especially during the First World War, to influence people's perception towards certain agendas or ideas. Artists were asked to create works using posters, photography, films and other media of mechanical reproduction to convey certain ideological messages. Today, it still an everyday occurrence in our lives that subtly manipulates public opinion through the intentional spread of biased information in mass media, the internet, and various social networks. Artists should always be aware of such influence on their own views.During the national preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, we would like to explore artists' practices in regards to art and propaganda. For the second round of discussions, art historian, Mari Komoto, scholar of modern history, Masanori Tsujita and sociologist, Yoshitaka Mori will join us to explore propaganda in today's Japan.( Facilitator: Yuma Nishio)
