Lab Café Special featuring Search Project: Day 1 of "Behavior and Dialogue Regarding Disasters"

2016-3-11 (Fri) 19:00 - 21:00

At Art Area B1, each spring since 2011, we have held the "Search Project," which "searches" for the possibilities of art and knowledge. In this year's vol. 5, entitled "New 'Colony/Island' 2," we'll hold a dialogue from various viewpoints with a focus on the islands of Japan, positioned on planet Earth, as well as the "disaster" caused by the earth's activity. On day one of this project, we'll introduce the planned exhibition of the steering committee members of Art Area B1, as well as hold an explanatory session for exhibition support staff during the gallery tour and open meeting.

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.
