“Roppongi Art College Special 1 Day” Program
Talk “The Artist Collective as Company”
Roppongi Crossing 2019 Related Program
Conducted in Japanese
* This program is a part of “Roppongi Art College Special 1 Day.”
The recent proliferation of terms like “art thinking” and “design thinking” suggests the business world has also begun to look to art for inspiration and solutions. With contemporary art expression itself diversifying to encompass the likes of socially-engaged art and performance art, when artists express themselves, what in society are they responding to in devising their concepts, and how are they gaining the understanding of those around them to put those concepts into practice? At this talk, the members of the “Mé” artist collective (Minamigawa Kenji, Kojin Haruka, Masui Hirobumi) will explain the process involved in making their work Keitai (2019) for Roppongi Crossing 2019. Through their own practice, they will discuss how the activities of artists can function as a corporate venture, shake up the existing social system, and offer possibilities for new kinds of “company.”
