Flesh, Skin, Gender, Expression: A Tour of ‘The Gaze of Things: Japanese Photography in the Era of Provoke’ by UC Berkeley Professor Miryam Sas.

 

In honor of International Women’s Day, Miryam Sas will lead a guided tour of The Gaze of Things exhibition with a focus on the following questions: how did Japanese experimental photography reframe understandings of the body? How did male photographers highlight both men’s and women’s performances of gender? What was the role of Japanese women photographers in the era of Provoke?

She specializes in Japanese culture and arts, comparative literature and critical theory (Japanese, French, English, German). She is the author of two books, Experimental Arts in Postwar Japan: Moments of Encounter, Engagement, and Imagined Return  (Harvard, 2010); and Fault Lines: Cultural Memory and Japanese Surrealism (Stanford University Press, released in 2001), and articles on Japanese photography, futurism, cross-cultural performance, butoh dance, intermedia art, pink film and experimental animation.  She is currently working on a book on media theory and intermedia art in Japan, Media Acts: Infrastructure, Potentiality, and the Afterlife of Art in Japan, for which she was awarded a UC President’s Research Fellowship in the Humanities.
