Lab Café / Nakanoshima Philosophy Collège -- "The Inside-Out Mountain Cat"

2015-11-3 (Tue) 19:00 - 21:00

Think about it. If we're here, we're not there. And if we're there, we're not here. The "here" that we are, and the "there" that we're not. The front can only exist with a back, and the back can only exist with a front. So if that's the case, do we exist on the surface? Or do we exist on the reverse side? "Well, if you look at it from the other side, that just means the front is the back and the back is the front." We'll read the picture book entitled Uraomote Yamaneko (The Inside-Out Mountain Cat) while going back and forth between two worlds.

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.
