Talk in Berlin, London and Paris

Dear All,

Talk events on my new book "Art History Japan: 1945-2014" written
in English and Japanese will be held in Berlin, London and Paris.
Topic 1: art history written by an artist
Topic 2: historical cycles (avant-garde to anti-art to diversity)
Come and witness today's true radicalism if you are in the city!
