      【An Eye for Community|東京台北社區交往】Tokyo - Taipei Transition Workshop Booklet

    • About Our Project

      2013年,我們在台北舉辦了以「Tokyo Community Space」為題的小型展覽會,挑選出位於東京的12處社群空間,分別訪談其籌辦人,並以展覽與手冊的形式發表。我們希望能呈現出那一份電視媒體從未報導過的東京原貌。透過這個活動,我們了解到台北與東京這兩座城市,出乎意料地擁有類似的社會問題,以及面對這些問題所具備的危機意識。

       

      經過了4年之後,〝東京奧運〞宛如抹除所有「負面事物」的魔法一般突然現身於日本。市場股價恢復,市中心的不動產價格上揚,令人回想起泡沫經濟時代。然而,這些都只是一部份的現象,也就是只限於〝大企業〞與〝東京〞而已。另一方面,逐漸從人們記憶中淡去的受災地區,情況則變得更為複雜且嚴峻。大多數的日本人並沒有感受到奧運這股魔法所施予的恩惠,生存的環境倒不如說變得日益嚴苛。現在,日本正日趨兩極化。

       

      雖然如此,無論身處於何種情勢之中,我認為,我們都應積極思考人與社會今後的存在形式,而「社群」將是一個有益的觀點。理由在於,社群是一種作為人們實際活動的存在,同時也如鏡子一般,倒映出存在於其間的問題 (例如:震災後的復興、高齡化、貧窮等等)。那是一個與魔法無緣的世界,活生生的現實。那也可以說是每個人為了開闢自己的將來而拼命掙扎的真實樣貌。正因如此,我們能相信「社群」存在著可能性。

       

      在本次為期10天的活動中,我們一方面聚焦於兩國的社群,以及逐漸失落的城市風景,一方面則以複合性的方式舉辦會議、田野調查,以及藝術專案等活動。它既是身為企劃者的我們的自問自答,同時,或許也能提示出將來在台灣發生類似現象的可能性。我們希望透過對話,共享彼此的問題意識、乃以對將來的展望,並讓它成為最初的一步。

      Chris Dimmer, Urban researcher

      Dr. Christian Dimmer graduated from the interdisciplinary ‘Spatial and Environmental Planning’ program at the Technical University of Kaierslautern/ Germany. Besides his academic research he has cooperated with architectural firms such as Arata Isozaki and Associates or property developers like Mitsubishi Estate Inc. as urban design consultant on large-scale urban revitatisation schemes in central Tokyo as well as on various new town projects in China. In 2006 he established with two colleagues the architectural practice Frontoffice/ Tokyo. Christian has earned his PhD from the University of Tokyo with his urban history dissertation ‘[Re]negotiating Public Space: a Historical Critique of Modern Public Space in Metropolitan Japan and its Contemporary Re-valuation’. As a JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) post-doctoral research fellow he was affiliated with the Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies at the University of Tokyo, where he examined the 'Politics and Contestations of Public Space in post-industrial metropolitan Japan'. This project was carried out in cooperation with his research host Prof. YOSHIMI Shunya. Christian was Assistant-Professor at the University of Tokyo (between April 2012 and March 2016), where he taught post-graduate courses on 'Advanced Urban Studies' as well as 'Dissertation Writing.' He also holds the position of an Adjunct-Professor at Waseda University’s School of International Liberal Studies, where he teaches undergraduate courses on ‘Sustainable Urbanism,’ 'Politics of Public Space,' 'Global Urbanism', as well as ‘Post-positivist Planning Theory’. He is co-founder of the charitable, design-led disaster response organisation, Architecture for Humanity (now Open Architecture Collaborative OAC)|Tokyo Chapter, as well as of the TPF²|Tohoku Planning Forum, which facilitates the exchange of ideas, projects and initiatives for the reconstruction of the disaster-hit areas of Tohoku in north-eastern Japan with international experts and professionals from various fields.

      Kyoco Taniyama (谷山恭子), Artist

      Born in Aichi, Japan, Lives and works in Tokyo.

      My creative inspiration is motived by the concept of ubiety- which is the quality or state of being in a place. Since I obtained B.A and M.A in Product and Craft Design Program at Musashino Art University in Japan, I’ve showed my works at museums and galleries mainly in Japan. I’ve been also involved in community based art projects, site-specific installations and public art projects that emphasize the history and character of a specific area from around 2008. After the massive earthquake and tsunami hit the East Coast Japan in 2011, people lost their geographic location under the devastated area. Since then, I started lat/long project, which was composed of the combination of lat/long numbers and showed the location where I was exactly at on the earth. I received grant from Asian Cultural Council and stayed in New York from August, 2012 to February, 2013. While I was in New York, I also participated in the residency program, Swing Space organized by LMCC. As for the publication, my artwork was featured in the Power of Japanese Art in 2005, Setouchi International Art Festival catalogue in 2010, Vogue Japan in 2013, and many others such as news papers and magazines.
