Tokyo Biennale 2020 “Social Dive”
Dive into Tokyo, Engage with the People!
Open Call for Artist-in-Residence Projects
Application Guideline [September 2019]
General Non-Profit Incorporated Organization Tokyo Biennale Executive Office
“Social Dive” involves artists diving into the different areas of Tokyo as part of an art project aimed at discovering both the unique traditions, as well as new values held by the people who live there. The project calls for artists whose practice deals with socially engaged art through a wide spectrum of ideas and methods of expression or action; whether it be fine art, design, performance, media art, film, architecture, academic research, social action, economic-related – all fields are welcome.
Especially concerning overseas applicants, we wish to support projects that capture through a unique lens the beauty of Japanese traditions or the diversity existing in its contemporary culture; as well as the creation of artworks that shed light on a universality existing on earth through the connections made between Tokyo localities and outside cultures.
“Go Beyond! Dive in! Tokyo Biennale!”
What are we afraid of? What are we holding on to?
Change won’t wait for us. We have only now to go beyond. Things only keep changing, so we must always go beyond. Go beyond memories, history, politics, school, rules, design, architecture, dance, fashion, games, the media, yourself, and of course, art!
