This publication is produced for the 'Koganecho Bazaar' project held in the locality of Koganecho, Yokohama in Nov 2009. In the project, two new art studios are open in the former red-light district of Koganecho in Yokohama. These studios form the main venue of the event and also serve as the location for the opening of Koganecho Bazaar. The aim of Koganecho Bazaar is to regenerate the Koganecho district through the co-existence of art and community, and it can be seen as the first step in this process. Not limited to a conventional interpretation of art, a comprehensive program is being organized that welcomes a wide range of ideas and events to reexamine the local environment, while also introducing new commercial ventures related to fashion, food and housing.
