Far in the future. A mysterious facility orbiting. Lives taken at the cost of history, including institutional violence and war, are finally redeemed through “resurrection!” Catalan anarchists, colonial farm women, kamikaze suicide attackers, unknown assassins... The dead, chosen by AI, are resurrected and recover their own bodies in the midst of violent turmoil.

They are literally overwhelmed by their "second life" and realize that they can no longer die, and question its meaning. Isn't this world just an exhibition space?" The resurrected soldiers gather at the bar counter and talk over a glass of wine into the endless night.

This exhibition attempts to reframe the conditions of the exhibition space from the perspective of the dead or from a curatorial viewpoint. In addition to the above video work "A I O U" (2020) by Adam Khalil, Bayleigh Switzer, and Anton Vidokle, the exhibition will also include a photographic work by Mitsutoshi Hanaga from the exhibition "The Order of the Spell-Slaying Prayer Monks" to be held at Asakusa at the same time, and as reference material, a record of a lecture given by the founder of macrobiotics, George Ohsawa (1893-1966).
