This event has ended.

Asakusa is delighted to announce its inaugural group exhibition “1: The Third Entity” with artists Taka Atsugi, Mikhail Karikis and Héctor Zamora, presented in video as a medium for documentation and interdisciplinary research practices. Portraying workers’ communities through geo-historical specificity, the exhibited works project how models of solidarity can be viewed through the lenses of gender, age, and eco-political dynamics, concurrently reflecting on contemporary realities of post-industrial society and the era of immaterial production. With a view on social engagement in art that rehearses the future through constructed situations, the exhibition addresses ideas that are central to the conception of future community: collaboration, public ownership and the third sector, voluntary participation, lateral powers, the sharing of knowledge and energy resources.

“1: The Third Entity” is curated by Asakusa and Kawakami Laboratory, Kurashiki University of Science and the Arts.
