Lab Café Special and Search Project Tie-In - Intelligence and Sensitivity Network Series: "All About Kumagusu"

2015-5-9 (Sat) 16:00 - 18:00

Famous for his work in the field of mycology, MINAKATA Kumagusu is known for his amazing ability to understand 18 different languages. But he's also well-known for being a bit of an eccentric individual. For this lecture, we've invited NISHIKAWA Masaru, a faculty member from Osaka University CSCD, philosopher, and personal fan of MINAKATA Kumagusu, to speak with us about the charm of Kumagusu's more human side, while exploring the life of Dr. MINAKATA together with us.

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.
