Tokyo Arts and Space Residency provides opportunities for international creators in various disciplinesincluding art, design, architecture and curation to stay, create works and conduct a research in Tokyo, offering studio spaces and accommodations for the creators. "OPEN STUDIO" is the special occasion for the audience to see creative activities by the creators with images, videos and drawings and hear their talks and a dialogue with guest speakers.

Nine groups will give talks on 3/10 (Sat.), and there will be a special talk by Patrizia DANDER, curator at the Museum Brandhorst in Munich, Germany, on 3/11 (Sun.). During her residency, she focused on the aftermaths of the Osaka Expo '70, which propagated an outright "techno-utopia" with the introduction of groundbreaking technologies such as video-telephones or robots. She will discuss the development of the relation between art and technology with IGUCHI Toshino, Professor of Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Saitama University.
