Lab Café Café Image - Tiny Photo Festival Vol. 2: Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe Before the War (Part 2)

2016-3-18 (Fri) 19:00 - 21:00

YASUDA Tatsujiro was an amateur photographer who did his work mainly in the Osaka area prior to World War II. In the 50 volumes of 9.5 mm film taken by Mr. Yasuda during the period between 1929 and 1933, we can see the landscape and life in the Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe area of that era. With images some 90 years old right in front of us, what kinds of things do we feel? What kinds of things can we say? In continuation from Vol. 1, thanks to Mr. YAMANISHI Terukazu, who owns and maintains these precious images captured by Mr. Yasuda, let's take a look at these images together while discussing a different kind of archive and the meaning behind 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.
