Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 062, Dr. Gennifer Weisenfeld (Duke University) Weisenfeld, Gennifer; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Weisenfeld depicts how Japanese avant-garde artists responded to the structures and institutions of modern art constructed during the Meiji Period, as well as their destruction in the 1923 Great Kantō Earthquake. We discuss artistic reactions to modernity, the visual culture of civil air defense in wartime Japan, ties between visual culture and the nation-state, and the graphic design of Japanese corporate advertising.
