Lab Café -- Movie Showing + Public Conversation

2014-7-20 (Sun) 12:30 - 19:00

Christoph Schlingensief is an artist who has extended the scope of his art from various media spaces and systems to social life settings. In this café, after appreciating his documentary films of legendary action and performance filled with characteristic voices, we will discover just what is necessary for creating places for expressing one's opinions, following a plan created by a facilitator who has been involved in making common spaces in the local community.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
