In a matter of weeks, artists around the globe have suddenly found themselves surrounded by a haze of uncertainty. Art fairs, residencies and festivals are postponed, in-person collaborations are cancelled and international travel has all but disappeared.
This “new” world – further removed from the physical than we have ever experienced – has forced artists to adapt to entirely new structures. But perhaps it is this new challenge that also gives rise to new opportunities: time and freedom to question and redraw our way of creating and experiencing art from the bottom-up.
As an encouragement to keep pushing forward and to break this mist of uncertainty, the Austrian Cultural Forum Tokyo has launched #JapanRevisited202x: then–now–after which reimagines the cultural exchange between Austrian artists and Japan, a bond that has existed for more than 150 years and is now facing an abrupt change.
