Item Summary

Title:Remembering Mono-Ha: The Reconstruction of Encounters
Authors:Jack, James
Date Issued:2011
Abstract:This thesis presents multiple perspectives on the Japanese Postwar art movement Mono-ha. These artworks engaged in international discourse relying on new associations with the common Japanese word mono (things) in the period from 1967 to 1973. The aim of this thesis is to diversify perspectives on Mono-ha, drawing upon primary texts, original interviews and photographic archives to develop accounts of events and their meanings. Throughout this thesis, emphasis will be placed not only on things but also on the Encounter, historically important to the movement. Conventionally this refers to the "encounter" of the viewer with a thing, the space the meeting takes place, and the philosophy that formed the structure of the movement. The concept of an "extended encounter" facilitated by photographs will point toward the positioning of photographers in debates on mono as part of a framework that offers a method for understanding Monoha artworks in multiple presents.
