Jugen Lehl The End of Civilization

@ 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa

About Event Designer Jurgen Lehl lived closely with nature and continually reminded people of its precious value. As his “last work,” Lehl chose to address serious environmental problems, and he created beautiful lamps using the plastic garbage washed up on beaches. Plastic, which does not decompose, attained a splendorous new utility in Lehl’s hands. Jurgen Lehl, who died suddenly in 2014, showed us what it means to live with respect for nature. 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa Facilities / Organizations information Adress 1-2-1 Hirosaka, Kanazawa City, Ishikawa, Japan 920-8509 Access From Komatsu Airport About 40 min by Airport Limousine bus.

A roundtable conference for experts, creators, users, and people who link creators and users to exchange opinions.

From Japan and around the world, a wide range of people involved in kogei will gather to exchange their opinions about the next 100 years of kogei. At this symposium featuring a new format, all participants will contemplate on the conference topic based on the results of the survey responses previously collected from all participants, the three questions for all participants, and the answers to those questions. The strengths and appeals of the Japanese kogei identified through the 21st Century Takagamine Forum will be shared among the participants. We will discuss issues that must be shared across Japan in preparation for 2020 in order to strengthen Japan’s inbound tourism and domestic tourism that focuses on Japanese kogei.

Symposium Series ~ Understanding Kogei around the World! Globalization and Kogei

@ Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Art & Hondanomori Meeting Room Room No.1

Both globally and within Japan, Kogei (craft) is facing a period of great change as people living in societies experiencing disruption in the areas of economic globalization and communication (due to the rise of social media) seek alternative ways of living. Kogei, in the broadest sense, may have an important role to play in the development of these new lifestyles. On the one hand, practitioners of Kogei are unusually insistent on the quality of their materials and highly focused on the deployment of skilled techniques to manufacture hand-crafted products. On the other hand, their work also has an aesthetic value, as expressed in phrases such as “the beauty of Kogei.” This dichotomy is due to the fact that Kogei is not only informed by its own specific ideologies and attitudes related to the concept of craftsmanship, but is also a category of the arts in general. These contrasting facets have recently given rise to a reconsideration of Kogei.
