Research / fFieldwork / Verification | Emiko KASAHARA [Native Americans, Trans Continental Railways, and American Contemporary Art #2]

Being interested in railway as a symbol of modern hegemonism, I attempt to create an artwork from researching cultural destruction and violation of cultural border occurred by building of railway. This time, I would like to report my fieldwork in the US this summer and exchange opinions with participants in everyday surrounding such as having meal. I aim to construct the context of the artwork openly by having such an occasion.
