The underground art scene in Tokyo is energetic. Takuro Kotaka, who is now in Hong Kong for a one-month artist residency supported by soundpocket and Art Center Ongoing, would like to introduce the Occupy Movement in Tokyo to Hong Kong audience as an ongoing development of the underground art scene.

The National Museum of Art, Okutama (MOAO) located deep in the mountains in Tokyo, is a museum which opens once every two years. It is housed in a disused factory and run by an artist collective. Thus, “Occupy School” is a cultural school hosted occasionally by Keroppy Maeda, a writer who has been writing about body modification.

The alternative exhibition by Takuro Kotaka, “IRONMAN”, in which fierce cars were exhibited in front of a department store will also be introduced in this upcoming DIALOGUE.


藝術家小鷹拓郎正在港開展由聲音掏腰包與合作夥伴Art Center Ongoing 支持為期一個月的藝術駐留生活,並將為大家介紹東京的佔領運動。

「國立奧多摩美術館」 是位於東京深山一所每兩年開放一次的博物館,它的前身為一座空置工廠並由藝術家團體管理;「佔領學校」 是由報導身體改造資訊的作家前田亮一,不定期舉辦之文化學校。


*The event will be conducted in Japanese and instant translation in Cantonese is available.
