Lecture series by Masashi Kohara: “Curation that poses questions”

Vol.3 the United States and Japan: Exhibition “VISIONS OF FUJI: An Incurable Malady of Modern Japan”・Portrait of the Emperor・Exhibition “Kyoichi Sawada: From Home to Battle Zone“
Vol.4 War and the Artists: Continuity between Prewar and Postwar: Exhibition “War and Postwar: The Prism of The Times”

At the exhibition, It’s A Small World, in Kyoto in February 2021, curator Masashi Kohara said, “While Human Exhibitions in old-time Expo treated humans in an ethnically or nationally categorized group, it seemed important to know individual or family aspect of these people. It is because photography captures individual elements.” Since those exhibited in Expo hardly left their words, Kohara sought to hear them by carefully seeing the photography in which they were captured. Why does filmmaker Kohara focus on curation in his work? I would like to listen to Kohara, whose words treat the ‘power’ of photographic or film media derived from their virtual and manipulative nature with great sensitivity. (Shiga)
