“Who are we on social media” – The German culture center Goethe Institut Tokyo partnered with Tokyo College to explore this question in a hybrid festival that will take place on October 1&2 at the art space BUoY in Tokyo’s Kitasenju district. It will bring together academic and artistic positions. Large parts of the symposium will be broadcast with the support of other Goethe-Instituts in East Asia and South East Asia to enable cross-regional participation.
Researchers from Tokyo College will present current research on identity topics in dense, entertaining formats and relate these to interviews produced for an Instagram project called metttazzzine as well as to the artistic contributions on site. The opening talk will set the framework for the festival by illuminating how identities are created through narrative processes on digital platforms.
