Diaspora Memoria

Performance art viewing and talk

Thursday, January 31st at 5pm ・HSSB 1151

Please join the Department of Theater and Dance for a viewing of work by Japanese artist Kondo Aisuke, followed by a Q & A with the artist.

Born and raised in Japan and currently based in Germany, Kondo explores questions of belonging, identity, memory, and history across a variety of media, from collage and gallery installation to video and performance. In his current Matter and Memory series (2017-present), Kondo retraces his greatgrandfather’s life as an immigrant in the US from his arrival in the early 1900s until his incarceration in the Topaz internment camp during World War II.
