Retrieving and Revitalizing: From Yurakucho to Yangon

Yau Studio


From Yurakucho to Yangon Study Group., Aung Myat Htay, Riar Rizaldi, Lee Kai-Chung
Yurakucho was the center of prewar Japan’s empire-spanning newspaper industry. Standing in the Yurakucho Building, this exhibition explores the nature of encounters between Japan’s imperial agents and their Southeast Asian interlocutors and subjects during wartime. With a focus on how Southeast Asian spiritual worldviews were captured, represented, and transformed in the course of this contact, the archival research section invites anthropologists, historians, and art history researchers to offer a fresh look into the encounter. To complement historical reality, the exhibition also features artists who employ artistic research to look into often-ignored perspectives during such historical moments.
