Akira Takayama: McDonald’s Radio University

McDonalds

Misa Shin Gallery will hold "McDonald's Radio University", Akira Takayama's solo exhibition, from Friday, November 23, 2018 to Saturday, January 19, 2019.

McDonald’s Radio University is a project that transforms branches of McDonald’s restaurant across a city into lecture spaces, creating a citywide university which first premiered in Frankfurt in 2017. The professors are immigrants or refugees who have had to leave their home countries, and the students are people who walk into a McDonald’s and order a lecture along with a burger and a coke.

The McDonald’s Radio University at Misa Shin Gallery takes place not in an actual McDonald’s restaurant, but in a re-creation of one. The professors include those who acted as Tokyo tour guides in Takayama’s New Tokyo School Excursion Project: Japanese Orphans in China Edition. In addition to this line-up, there will be lectures selected from the previous editions.

MISA SHIN GALLERY では 2018 年 11 月 23 日(金・祝)から 2019 年 1 月 19 日(土)まで、 高山明による展覧会「マクドナルド放送大学」を開催します。

「マクドナルド放送大学」は、町中のマクドナルドを大学に変えるアートプロジェクトです。「教授」はなんらかの理由で故国を離れることになった移民や難民で、「学生」はマクドナルドに入店しハンバーガーやコーラとともに「教授」のレクチャーを注文して聴講することができます。

MISA SHIN GALLERY における「マクドナルド放送大学」では、実店舗ではなくマクドナルドを模したギャラリー空間で行われます。今回の「教授」は、高山が企画した難民をガイドに東京を旅する「新・東京修学旅行 中国残留孤児編」に参加する中国帰国者の方々で、彼らとともに制作した新しい講義に加えフランクフルトとベルリンで制作された科目からセレクトし提供されます。初日の 11 月 23 日(祝)には、「教授」たちによる講義をライブで聞くことができます。
