Confessions Of An Otaku: David Blandy In Conversation With Manga Artist Inko

Talk & screening Thursday 16th February 2012

Time: 18.45

Venue: Asia house 63 New Cavendish Street London W1G 7LP

Video artist David Blandy unravels his obsession with Chinese and Japanese popular culture. From philosophical conversations with Bruce Lee to the quandary caused by loving Anime and being the grandson of a veteran of the Japanese concentration camps, Blandy will discuss the misrecognitions, mistranslations and revelations in Kung-Fu flicks, Manga and computer games.

Blandy uses video, performance and comics to address how identity is constructed, investigating our relationship to the mass media and cultural heritage.

Blandy won the Times/South Bank Show Breakthrough Award in 2010. Inko was born in Kyoto, Japan, and has been working as a Manga artist, and as a culture and language ambassador with SOAS.

    *Sighs* If only I live in London and I wasn’t living in benefits and being unemployed despite getting a BA(Hons) Degree in Fine Art…
