Koki Tanaka - A Vulnerable Narrator
Koki Tanaka - A Vulnerable NarratorThe Japanese artist Koki Tanaka references the history of “art activism” And views his work as a gentle sustainable approach to this movement. His “Artist of the Year” exhibition, “A Vulnerable Narrator,” at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin is a laboratory of sorts, one that ties together a decade's worth of projects, ideas, and documents. It traces Tanaka's path from early experiments with mass-produced goods and materials, to his collaborative actions and performances. Above all, Tanaka is interested in the question of how sensitive and open we are to the everyday objects that surround us, and how we might develop new relationships to them.
