The project brief is to propose a hypothetical exhibition with six selected artists and design a catalogue with advertising posters.
Dream Age is a hypothetical exhibition about postwar Japanese experimental art, focusing on photography and theater. Post-war photographers were largely active between the late 1950s and 1970s. The avant-garde group tore away from the journalistic tradition of Japanese photography to create raw, subjective images of the world around them. The artist of this era fought for expression, they tend to express feelings of incomprehension and ambiguity towards reality and the world, instead of analyzation and documentation. This catalog aims to capture the provocative spirit with the feature of six artists at this time: Daido Moriyama, Masahisa Fukase, Nobuyoshi Araki, Eikoh Hosoe, Nagisa Oshima and Terayama Shuji.
