Lab Café Special and Project Meeting - "Art and Existence"

2015-5-21 (Thu) 19:00 - 21:00

There's a saying that goes, "Man cannot live on bread alone." Be it between people through our day-to-day lives, or through ties with nature, art is very closely linked to our existence. However, because art has ties to various facets of our lives, it is often used for governmental and gentrification purposes, as well as a form of desperate longing for life. I'd like to talk with those in attendance about the possibilities of living with art that changes faces to fit the social circumstances and ideas of the people who create it.

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.
