Ozawa Tsuyoshi and Takayama Akira will participate in the exhibition “Learning/Sharing” at the Tottori Prefectural Museum, Japan from 26 November until 28 December 2023.
Ozawa Tsuyoshi will exhibit an installation of an enormous heap of over a hundred futons, titled “Everyone likes someone, as you like someone” Children encountering the installation are allowed to freely scramble up, slide down, and roll around on the heap of bedding. At the top of this mountain is a letterbox, where each child is encouraged to post a postcard with a picture he or she has drawn of a loved one, knowing that their card will eventually be delivered to someone he or she has never met.
“McDonald’s Radio University” by Takayama Akira will be premiered at McDonald’s restaurant in Tottori Prefecture. McDonald’s Radio University is a project that transforms branches of McDonald’s restaurant across a city into lecture spaces, creating a citywide university. The professors are immigrants or refugees who have had to leave their home countries, and the students are people who walk into a McDonald’s and order a lecture along with a burger and a coke. At McDonald’s restaurants in Tottori Prefecture, you will be able to listen to 17 lectures including three lectures newly created in Tottori.
