January 18–March 1, 2020 [Closed on February 29 and March 1]

[Temporary Closed] Special Screening: dumb type


Temporary Closing

In compliance with Japan’s national health authorities, NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC] have made the decision to close its facility from February 29 to March 1, as a measure against the further spreading of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Japan.

We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause to those who had hoped to visit on both dates.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Dumb type was formed in 1984, whose members studied at Kyoto City University of Arts. They are one of the most important groups of artists in Japan that have shown their cutting-edge art works and performances at many museums and art centers internationally. Its members specialized in visual art, art, music, design, architecture and dance collaborate to create performance, installation, printed matters and CD. The structure of each collaborative project differs. In recent years they mainly worked overseas, focused on balance between technology and humanity.

In conjunction with the solo exhibition “Dumb Type | Actions + Reflections” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, 7 videos of their performances, from 1987 will be screened.
