|Subject Overview:||This subject investigates modern and contemporary art forms in Japan including theatre, film, literature and visual arts. We consider how these forms of artistic production have developed and how they relate to historical and contemporary cultural trends, thus, cotemporary arts show us diverse insightful perspectives on Japan and its people. From a brief introduction to traditional Japanese aesthetic theory, the subject will consider in detail the radically innovative era of the 1960s. Artistic practices since then, including 21st century trends in hybridity and pluralism will also examined. Contemporary Japan in the Arts explores aesthetic production in relation to cultural debates and Japan's global branding as aesthetically cool. Seminar classes will introduce artistic production through presentations, discussion, reading, visual documentation and viewing of works on DVD. Students will be able to work on a seminar project in an area of their expertise and/or interest.|
