Center for Cultural Studies Colloquium – William Marotti: "Timely and Untimely Politics: Art and Protest in Early 1960s Japan"
April 24, 2013 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
“Timely and Untimely Politics: Art and Protest in Early 1960s Japan”
William Marotti explores politics and timeliness by examining the advent of a critical art of the everyday in Japan in the 1960s and its links to political action. Out of sync with eventful mass activism, artists sought to create eventfulness against a state-promoted, depoliticized daily life in the high growth economy.
William Marotti is Associate Professor of History and Chair, East Asian Studies MA Interdepartmental Program at UCLA.
