Exhibition: Disconnected Joints

NU+MAN presents Disconnected Joints featuring Dada Docot and Jong Pairez

This exhibition opens march 20, 2008 in Tokyo. Dada is a visual anthropologist and author of the interesting blog, "Here, there, and somewhere else." Below is an excerpt of the description of her upcoming show.

Dada Docot, a masters graduate of the University of Tokyo, who has combined random concepts about gender with the visual, is showing a video documentation of a performance staged at Shinagawa train station. In her work, she provides a critique of the general attitude of Japanese society towards foreigners in the country, highlighting an instance of racial profiling on a particularly "normal" day in Tokyo.
