  • Design and Society in Modern Japan: An Introduction
    • Abstract: It is common practice across milieus as varied as branding, advertising, exhibition reviews, and popular discourse to ascribe a particular set of aesthetic and other unique qualities to design production from different nations. British fashion is often described as "eccentric" or "individualistic," for example. Dutch furniture and graphic design is labeled "conceptual," and German automotive design "well-engineered." Within this global cloud of preconceived, often carefully-marketed images for national design production, "Japanese design" possesses one of the most recognizable profiles, albeit one with multiple personalities. Notions of minimalism, Zen, wabi-sabi, and cute are often ascribed as inherent attributes ... Read More

  • Japan's Industrial Arts: Present and Future (1917)
    • Abstract: In the short time frame since Japan opened its doors to the outside world 50 years ago, we have strived to import, imitate, and assimilate Western culture in the bid to attain parity with the great powers. In some parts of the world we are now considered quiet achievers, and we ourselves cannot help but be surprised by our remarkable progress. Even so, if we think about the issue carefully, Japan's irregular course of progress, achieved over the span of what barely constitutes several decades, is not in the same league as that of the West's systematic progress obtained through two to three hundred years' of experience. Accordingly, our progress is marred by disorder, disconnection, and inconsistency. We face many ... Read More

  • Industrial Arts and the Development of Japan's Industry (1932)
    • Abstract: The unique developmental trajectory of Japan's manufacturing industry is attributable to a combination of our people's innate abilities, their sustained efforts at technical advancement, and the prevalence in our country of small, family-based enterprises. However, in addition to the current standstill in manufacturing precipitated by reforms initiated during the Meiji Restoration,1 the industry has been overwhelmed by the pressures accompanying the importation of Western culture, including capitalism and the introduction of modern industry. Although, on the one hand, the extraordinary growth brought about by scientific and economic gains should be lauded, on the other hand, our national artistic output built over ... Read More

  • What Is Modernology (1927)
    • Abstract: 4.1 Yoshida Kenkichi and Kon Wajirō, Uniforms of Waitresses at Cafes in the Ginza (Ginza kafē jokyū-san no fukusō), from Women's Graphic [Fujin gurafu] (November 1926). Kon Wajirō Archive. Courtesy of Kōgakuin University Library. All rights reserved.Beginning in the 1910s and through the 1960s—as architecture first developed in Japan as a branch of engineering—Kon Wajirō (1888-1973) conducted research on decoration, ethnography, geography, fashion, and people's lifestyles. This was because, rather than focusing on architecture as material structure, he was interested in its relationship to everyday life and society: as a designer, Kon argued for the need to think about architecture from the standpoint of culture. ...

  • Conclusion to Introduction to Commercial Art (1930)
    • Abstract: In conclusion, commercial art has emerged from the disintegration of art and the aestheticization of commerce. I have previously discussed the style and aesthetics of commercial art. Now, what about its development' Since commercial art is art with a purpose, it pertains to pragmatically useful activities – but is that all' The reason commercial art constitutes a new and definitive art is that it has fully united the actual form of commerce – which is not commercialism, as in its true form commerce is simply distribution to many people – with the newly conceived form of production-art: commercial art becomes productive and simultaneously resists power when it merges commerce and production-art and moves them toward ...

  • "Believe in socialism …": Architect Bedřich Feuerstein and His
           Perspective on Modern Japan and Architecture
    • Abstract: In his very last letter, until now unpublished, Czech architect Bedřich Feuerstein (1892-1936) urged his friend Jaromír Čihař, a lawyer and loyal employee of the presidential office of Czechoslovakia, to endure and trust in socialism and the society it aims to produce.1 Feuerstein wrote the few lines above before setting out for his last journey to the Vltava River, where he committed suicide in the early morning of May 10, 1936. This study will employ notions deriving from Feuerstein's transnational career, his Central European cosmopolitism, as well as his political convictions, to explore his works in Japan that have gained historical significance over time. The complex and hybrid processes of the commission and ... Read More

  • Rethinking the Social Role of Architecture in the Ideas and Work of the
           Japanese Architectural Group NAU
    • Abstract: Japanese architectural historians tend to be wary of political discussion. One repercussion of this aversion is the insufficient attention paid to the ideas and projects of Japan's architects (as well as the country's output within urban studies and design) in the period immediately following World War Two. Upon closer examination, the issues and activities undertaken in this period reveal the complex political perspective of postwar architects toward prewar ideas, institutional and social systems, as well as historical frameworks and approaches to design theories. For instance, in a special issue of the journal Shinkenchiku (New Architecture) published in August 1955 titled "For a New Progress," the editors, among ... Read More

  • A Testimony from the Postwar Period (2008)
    • Abstract: Before speaking of the situation within the postwar advertising industry, let me touch on the state of things during the war. With the wartime paper shortage, newspapers became single-page collotypes. I was at the battlefront by then, so I only heard about this later. Evidently, with the war and shortages, there was no room for newspapers to waste on advertising. However, corporations still had publicity managers. Arai Seiichirō and Imaizumi Takeji, who were working for Morinaga and Marumiya at the time, were saying we can't just sit around and do nothing: we should be working for our country.1 So they called on their fellow advertising managers and in 1940 formed the Society for the Study of Media Technology (Hōdō ...

  • "Good Design" and "Good Quality" for the Consumer (1965)
    • Abstract: "Good design" (guddo dezain) has recently become all the vogue. Wherever consumers go, they find "good design" for sale. But oddly enough, these very products are often not in any way imbued with the principles of good design. Before we can make judgements on "good design," however, we must first consider various factors. For instance, at the product planning and design proposal stages, we need to ask: will the product be truly useful, or might it in some instances be excessively mundane or even harmful to society and mankind' ("Mankind" may be a little exaggerated, but you get my point.) Furthermore, in order to prevent wasteful overproduction and excessive consumption, we should investigate whether similar ... Read More

  • An Introduction to the World of Tools (1969)
    • Abstract: The word dōgu—tools—is utterly familiar to the Japanese. With every new era, this word has followed in our shadow and never ceased to be a part of us. When the bond between a parent and child is severed, when siblings become estranged and couples separate, tools still stand firmly at people's sides. They transcend sorrow and joy and are just like the second hand of a watch that ticks away without pause. The history of tools, beginning with objects in clay and stone, can be said to constitute none other than human history itself. The history of tools, objects unable to speak for themselves, trails the history of mankind like a shadow; man and tools emerged on this earth together. When the shadow stops moving, human ...

  • The 1968 Social Uprising and Advertising Design in Japan: The Work of
           Ishioka Eiko and Suzuki Hachirō
    • Abstract: 1968 was a turning point in Japanese postwar history: that year, Japan achieved the distinction of becoming the second-largest economy in the world, a feat that was perceived as close to a miracle by economists in Japan and around the world. Moreover, the new status of Japan in the international arena following the 1964 Tokyo Olympics – as it looked toward Osaka Expo '70 – instilled many urbanites, members of the civil service, and white collar workers with a sense of optimism and a strengthened desire to forget, repress, and leave behind the traumas of war. However, that same year, violent student and counterculture riots that began on university campuses spread, sparking nationwide social protests, and the Diet ... Read More

  • Place-Making Before and After 3.11: The Emergence of Social Design in
           Post-Disaster, Post-Growth Japan
    • Abstract: In the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011 many Japan-observers initially hoped for a broad renaissance of social and political life and a departure from what they saw as an "ageing, dysfunctional (socio-political) system" that proved unfit to reform. However, such initial optimism soon disappeared.1 Political deadlock persisted despite the national crisis, and Japan's famously inflexible institutions and segmented administrative landscape stymied far-reaching socio-political reform and swift reconstruction.2 Although such pessimism might be confirmed by an examination of the actual seemingly slow recovery process or warranted on a macro-political level, I argue that 3.11, as the day of ...

  • Ba of Emptiness: A Place of Potential for Designing Social Innovation
    • Abstract: The post-disaster landscape of March 2011 revealed the inadequacies of government policies still entrenched in the postwar economic expansion model,1 and serves as a prime example of how authority-driven, one-size-fits-all approaches to fixing large-scale "wicked problems" are often ineffectual due to the diverse character and needs of communities.2 As a design researcher, I examine this inadequacy in this essay first by critiquing how design often reinforces authority and centralization, usually by experts that seek to "solve" problems on behalf of the community. I argue that this can make the community passive recipients of experts' "solutions," leaving them removed and disabled from having input and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Founded in 2003 by Miwako Tezuka and myself, PoNJA-GenKon is a scholarly listserv for a wide range of people interested in postwar Japanese art history, from graduate students to scholars, from collectors to museum and other art professionals, with English as our shared language. The acronym is taken from Post-Nineteen forty-five Japanese Art History Discussion Group / Gendai Bijutsu Kondankai (現代美術懇談会). Over the past decade, as an active forum for exchanging ideas and information, PoNJA-GenKon (ポンジャ現懇 in Japanese) has grown to more than 200 registered members (www.ponja-genkon.net). In essence a virtual presence on the Internet, we have however, made a conscious effort to embrace and encourage new research in a ... Read More

  • Lost in the Archive: Yoko Ono and John Lennon's Four Thoughts
    • Abstract: In late May and early June of 1968, the work of Yoko Ono was to be presented at the Arts Lab Gallery in London. Listings in the British underground newspaper of record, International Times (hereafter IT), promise an exhibition titled Yoko Ono Water Show "for one week," from May 28 through June 1.1 The next issue of IT, however, while still listing Water Show as continuing through June 1, lists a new exhibition, John Lennon and Yoko Ono: Four Thoughts, opening at Arts Lab on June 2 and continuing through June 9. Although this latter exhibition marks, as I propose, Ono and Lennon's first truly collaborative exhibition, little mention of it appears in the voluminous documentation of all things Beatles—or in the ...

  • From Design to Environment: "Art and Technology" in Two1966 Exhibitions at
           the Matsuya Department Store
    • Abstract: In November 1966, when visitors standing on the busy thoroughfare of Ginza stepped into Matsuya Department Store, few of them probably remembered that the store had been commandeered by the Occupation Forces and served as the Tokyo Main PX (Post Exchange) for military and occupation personnel from 1946 to 1952. Those who ascended to Matsuya's eighth floor encountered two exhibitions side by side when they got off the escalator. One exhibition, to the left, Good Design, continued one of the store's signature cultural programs that dated back to the establishment of the "Good Design Corner" in 1955 (fig. 18.1).
