MOT Satellite 2019 Wandering, Mapping
This event has ended.
“MOT Satellite,” organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT), aims to rediscover the richness and charm of the museum’s surrounding neighborhood through city strolls that encourage visitors to explore and engage with various artworks and the local district. Rather than going straight home after viewing the exhibitions at the museum, visitors are invited to take a walk and wander around the streets of Kiyosumi-shirakawa. On this occasion we bring our focus to “Maps.”
The exhibition introduces various “Maps,” from maps depicting an imaginary city in detail, to those that convey senses such as touch, smell, and sound, as well as ones that visualize the daily lives of the people who live there. A ‘game book’ that entails collecting narrative fragments, and tapestry interwoven as participants respond to questions, both encourage viewers to reconsider the ways they perceive and interact with different places. “Maps” that serve as clues in encountering unknown regions while also being mirrors that reflect one’s own perspectives, indeed harbor the potential to change the way you look at and engage with the museum’s local district and the neighborhood where you live.
