Type(TAKATANI Shiro, TOMARI Hiromasa), Monika
Taking the activities of the two groups - Masayuki TOWATA + Yasuaki
MATSUMOTO and Dumb Type - who cutting across various spheres, have
critically articulated contemporary modes of embodied sense that straddle
the limit between death and media, we will investigate the ways in
which media and art has maintained a conflictual relationship. Then
we will investigate how they will transform in the future.
The expressions of these two groups are known to be filled with provocative
and primordial ideas; diffusion and solitude, emergence and disappearance,
language and silence, love and death, transcendence and transgression.
What modes of expression are we searching for as our bodies are cut
across by advanced technology and media?
We will look at the present and the future of art with Monika FLEISCHMANN
who is a founding member of Art+Com, the group that has fused media
technology and art research.
