'This issue of Review of Japanese Culture and Society examines Japanese art of the 1960s, perhaps the most studied decade of post-1945 Japanese art. Specific focus has been given to vanguard practices that took art "outside the box", so to speak, wherein the "box" stands for the various conventional and institutional strictures of art.' - excerpt from introduction by Reiko Tomii.
With three articles that explore examples of "art outside the box" through in-depth art-historical research, and the proceedings of Japanese art Since 1945: The First PoNJA-GenKon Symposium. Also included in the publication is the translation of a fictional work by Yoko Ono. Biographies of the contibutors are included.
