“Contemporary art and regional revitalization: A Case study from Echigo-Tsumari”

This meeting aims to explore how culture can contribute to the revitalization of regions
which are often perceived to be in the periphery from the viewpoint of the state.
Characteristic cases from Cornwall (Great Britain) and Echigo-Tsumari (Niigata, Japan)
are presented. In Cornwall in the Southwest of Great Britain, the Celtic cultural revival
movement around the Cornish language has increasingly gained official recognition in
recent years and has essentially contributed to promoting a new self-consciousness of
the region. In Echigo-Tsumari, the Art Triennial has envisaged site specific artworks
in this rural region and has attracted much attention beyond the contemporary art scene
since its beginning in 2000. While the means and approaches are different, both cases
have in common that they utilize cultural factors built upon local resources as part of
the regional revitalization strategies. The question of power, agency and the impact of
external perspectives on local views will also be discussed. A comparison of experiences
will provide new insights and perspectives for regional development in other regions as

The presentations and discussion will be in English.
Admission is free.
