THEME

The theme for this year is “Living upon the history”.

A long history underlies in every place that we reside and live. Our lives are built upon the accumulated history of each place.
In the 20th century when the economy and industry developed rapidly, we tried to put the conventional history behind us to build a new world. However, we have learned and told that the humankind cannot break off history and that we stand upon history. This is how we live today.

History of humankind, history of nations, history of society, history of cities, history of towns, history of locations, history of living, history of houses, history of families…history is extremely diverse.
In each type of history, experiences of humankind is overlapped and woven together with space.

What does it mean to live today upon history? How can it be expressed in terms of space and time in the present day?
We look forward to your proposals.
