Date: Thursday, January 31

Place: HSSB 1151
Please join the Department of Theater and Dance for a viewing of work by Japanese artist Kondo Aisuke, followed by a Q&A with the artist.
Born and raised in Japan and currently based in Germany, Kondo explores questions of belonging, identity, memory, and history across a variety of media, from collage and gallery installation to video and performance. In his current Matter and Memory series (2017-present), Kondo retraces his great grandfather’s life as an immigrant in the US from his arrival in the early 1900s until his incarceration in the Topaz internment camp during World War II.
