Report on the recent fieldwork & Dinner | Emiko KASAHARA [Native Americans, Trans Continental Railways, and American Contemporary Art]
This is a gathering of dinner / open conversation on the topic of “Native American, Trans Continental Railways, and American Contemporary Art. I’m going to report on my most recent fieldwork in the summer 2016 and hope to exchange opinions openly with participants. Being interested in railway as a symbol of modern hegemonism, I trace cultural destruction and violation of cultural border in the U.S. occurred by building of trans continental railway. I’m interested in constructing the context of the artwork in everyday occasion such as a having meal together. The food is provided by featuring artist Tomohiro Miyakawa’s (b,1993) action arttwork “Hamburger” -I make it / I feed it– ,in which he treat self-made delicious hamburgers for participants. Considering how native American food cycle was destroyed, his action artwork is quite interesting to think about together with my research topic.
