I’m very happy to say that I’ll be giving a talk at Sophia University in Tokyo next week, 15 June 2018. “Dual Legacies: MAVO, Manga, and the Avant-Garde in Interwar Japan” explores the role that the radical 1920s art movement MAVO played in the work of the two most influential mangaka of the 1930s, Yanase Masamu and Tagawa Suihô, both of whom were MAVO members.
The talk starts at 18:30 and is open to the public. Full details are on the ICC page. I hope to see you there!
