Labo Café's -- "What is loving your country? Comparisons with Holland"

2012-12-5 (Wed) 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Recently more attention is being paid to territorial problems and the problem concerning standing and singing the [Japanese] national anthem. Thus, we members of the Japan-the Netherlands Student Conference have invited Dutch students to Japan and have discussed nationalism and the situations of our two countries. In this Labo Café, considering the view that we gained from this exchange, starting from nationalism or patriotism, let's think about do we as individuals and humans share a relationship with our country.

Guests: Members of Japan-the Netherlands Student Conference

Cafe masters:

  • HOMMA Naoki, Specially Appointed Associate Professor, CSCD
  • MATSUKAWA Eri, Specially Appointed Associate Professor, CSCD

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1 is the "Lab Café," designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. The 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 on the 1st basement of the Naniwabashi Station was set up as the Art Area B1 at the time of opening of the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line on October 19, 2008. Starting then, the project to make the station a center of artistic communication commenced.
