Photologue | The Chance to Recover Our Humanity

The fourth edition of the Yokohama Triennale 2011, 'OUR MAGIC HOUR: How Much of the World Can We Know?,' opened on 6 August and will run through 6 November, despite the disturbances caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake in March of this year. As Osaka Eriko, Director General of Yokohama Triennale 2011 and Director of the Yokohama Museum of Art, expressed, ‘at times like these, it is important to reaffirm that which is close to home and return, step by step, to normal life’. As is suggested in the title, the Triennale wishes to shed light on both the ugliness and beauty of human nature, on the diversity and complexity of the world, and in so doing help people take the next step beyond difficult circumstances. Over seventy local and international artists are featured in the Triennale. In addition to the two main venues at the Yokohama Museum of Art and BankART Studio NYK, other special tie-in programmes as well as the city’s ongoing Creative City Project are presented at various venues throughout the city, including ‘Shin-Minatomura: A Small City for the Future BankART Life III’ and 'Koganecho Bazaar 2011.'
