Salon 3.11


During the festival “Japan Syndrome” the “Salon 3.11” will open its doors in regular shifts, providing spectators with the opportunity to talk informally with the central figures of the festival in an intimate atmosphere. It all gets started with a talk between Stéphane Bauer, director of the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanian and curator of the exhibition “Distant Observations: Fukushima in Berlin” (March 2011) and the filmmaker Hikaru Fujii. The Leipzig-based Japan scholar Steffi Richter, who edited the award-winning “Lesebuch Fukushima” last year, speaks with Tadasu Takamine. Members of the band Sangatsu discuss the lines of connection between post-rock and Zen Buddhism with Christoph Gurk. Journalist Peter Laudenbach interviews Toshiki Okada about his experiences as an exile to western Japan. In addition there are two open air events, at which the artist Yukihiro Taguchi hosts an “Open House” on the embattled grounds of the Cuvrybrache in Kreuzberg and another action in front of HAU2.
