アサクサは、エリック・ボードレールとナイーム・モハイメンによる二人展『藪の中 日本赤軍』を開催いたします。現代政治において例外的に引き起こる無政府状態、政治的ユートピアとその反動の歴史、また過去の出来事と記憶から呼び戻されるイメージの召喚、ドキュメンタリー映像と感情=記憶の接続など、共通の関心を多くもつ二人のアーティスト。それぞれ異なる経緯から、同時期に70年代の日本の急進左派がもたらした衝撃とその遺産ついて考察を深めてきました。『藪の中』と題された本展は、国際政治史に深く刻まれたこれらの出来事を、ダッカ、ベイルート、東京という異なる文化圏の視座からから多角的に検証し、それらの事実認識や主張を、一義的な真実として捉えること難しさを描き出します。

ASAKUSA is a 40-square-meter exhibition venue for contemporary art programmes committed to advancing curatorial collaboration and practices. The programs follow the artistic development since Futurism, Dada, Fluxus, the emergence of video art and institutional critique, while providing a historical framework to the local art context. It has worked with artists Thomas Hirschhorn, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Yoko Ono, Anton Vidokle and Hito Steyerl amongst others, while introducing Japanese early avant-garde collectives such as Mavo (1924-25) and documentary filmmakers Prokino (1929-31). Artists talks, discussions, academic symposia and publications are produced alongside these programs.

Asakusa opened in 2015, with an aim to co-curate exhibitions with researchers of diverse academic fields, and to focus on programmes which combine community-based initiatives with social and political agendas. The organisation is run by a small voluntary team —currently of two people— recruiting additional members to execute each project. This year, it launched “Asakusa Entertainments”, a serial exhibition of videos and films which critically reviews the history of mass culture and entertainment industries. The programme intends to promote discursive culture in the gallery’s neighborhoods, through inviting artists to deliver talk, performance and to produce new work in commission. Both print and digital publication of “Asakusa (Journal)” is currently under way.
