The ArtCamp 2016 international summer school held by the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art welcomed four Japanese participants and a visiting artist Mr. Kazuhiro Yajima. The group included students from three Japanese art universities and one arts management specialist who also had an opportunity research about ArtCamp and its organisation to assess the possibilities of establishing a similar programme in Akita, Japan. They participated in three one-week art courses each and completed them all successfully. The visiting artist Kazuhiro Yajima taught a one-week course of architecture focused on the Japanese tea house tradition with a very positive feedback from the participants. ArtCamp has proved again to be a useful tool in maintaining and developing our cooperation and relationships with Japanese universities and institutions.

Seventy-one years on, a way to peace posed by the heritage of Hiroshima

From the Organizer:

The Peace Treaty project has always been the cornerstone of the dss2016 cultural programme, being its main project which, would provide the necessary scope for us to talk about the main thematic pillars of our candidature: peace and coexistence among different peoples and cultures in San Sebastian and Europe. This year, a project, containing a wide variety of activities related to the Peace Treaty, started in 2013 and the process that has been built until 2016 will be represented together.

This exhibition is driven by a collaborative work methodology, under the artistic direction of Pedro G. Romero, and is presented in different formats, different institutional spaces, and hinges upon the collaboration with a large team of local and international agents. In order to reconsider peace, four clocks are to be taken from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum as symbolic examples.

At the end of its entire process, the legacy generated and left by Peace Treaty shall be immense, in terms of experiences, heritage, and documentary deposits and publications.

The exhibition focusing on the drawings by M. Koscielniak, the Holocaust survivor was organized successfully. It was one of the series of successive activities I have dedicated my life for nearly two decades, the artist’ wife entrusted the precious drawings to me whom she put trust the serious writer about Holocaust, to safely preserve and exhibit to as many people as possible in Japan. This lecture that I talked this fact and my determination to return the drawings to Poland gave a great emotion to the audience. And they were given profound insight with the drawings and wish to show them to the next generation as well. In order to respond to the requests, I  am now seeking the way to obtain fund to create the accurate reproduction (replica) of the drawings.

Creation by young artists from Japan and Poland on the theme “Two Sticks”

Main outcome of the program was a wide range presentation of Japanese contemporary drawing attitudes and confrontation with Polish artists approach. Contacts and cooperation between Poland and Japan has been developed. There are plans for further cooperation according to Drawing Center, which is going to be established in Wrocław and Tokyo. Wrocław’s audience had chance to see interesting and fresh view on contemporary drawing installations located in specific gothic space, which is inspiring for Japanese artists. Participation of Sadaharu Horio, his live-performance with audience engagement has brought, together with Gutai documentary movie projection, deeper insight into Japanese avant-garde. All events of the program attracted a large number of visitors, who were declaring to see outstanding art in beautiful and demanding venues. A large catalog with rich content will be published in June 2016.
