AAUK 2019 Residency Award winner Satoshi Hashimoto
is arriving in UK for Autumn Residency

We are excited to introduce AAUK 2019 residency award winner, Satoshi Hashimoto, and a series of programmes.

A panel discussion “Art and Political Censorship in Japan” with Dr. Mouri, Morgan Quaintance and Jenny White, and an artist talk/ discussion event "After Fukushima" are among other activities planned during Hashimoto's Residency Programme. 

Responding to the partial shutdown of Aichi Triennial earlier this summer, this discussion event centres around the issues of freedom of expression, Censorship and Self Censorship in Japan. Many Art Action UK artists and associates are directly affected by these issues.
Art Action UK 2019 Residency Award winner Satoshi Hashimoto will bring fresh insights from Japan, and prominent sociologist Dr. Mōri will share his analysis of the current situation via skype from Tokyo. Satoshi and Morgan Quaintance will discuss their perspectives as artists and writeres. The discussion will be chaired by Jenny White.

The places are limited, so please book your place via our Event Page

Art Action UK is an arts collective that began through responding to the 2011 disaster in North East Japan, which triggered the nuclear crisis in Fukushima.
We will be hosting artists for our Residency Project this autumn, and deliver discussion events in relation to the question;
How Can Art Contribute to Discourses on Planetary Crisis?

If you would like to get involved in future activities, please contact us.

We are a collective of artists, curators, gallerists and writers who are exploring means to show solidarity and support for people who have been affected by natural and manmade disasters.

The 2011 Japanese earthquake, tsunami and subsequent Fukushima nuclear fallout has been the catalyst for Art Action UK.

ArtAction UK has been supporting artists dealing with the issues relating to the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and subsequent Fukushima nuclear fallout in Japan.

The consequence of the disaster is still unfolding, drawing attention to global environmental issues, geo-political crises and global economic breakdowns, while countless accounts and experiences are buried in the fallout of the disaster.  AAUK has been providing platforms for artists, curators, researchers as well as students who are asking questions, unearthing a different perspectives.
