基礎や基盤を意味する インフラ INFRAという名前は、アーティスト、参加者にとっての新しい基盤を意味しています。

Berlin’s 3hd Festival and Tokyo-based EBM(T) Gallery are combining forces to work on インフラ INFRA 2017 in Tokyo, running August 19 to 26.

An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

The name インフラ INFRA is a play on the abbreviated form of ‘infrastructure,’ and breaks new ground for participants.

Artists

Dambi Kim

Dambi Kim is the host of Meditative Sounds (冥想曲) delivering the serenity and transience of life through tea, incense, words and audio. By playing a Korean traditional black zither, called the geomungo, Kim was first introduced to the way of tea in 2014. Philosopher Sen Rikyu’s wabi-cha teaching was a major inspiration when she fell in love with Chinese tea during a sojourn in Europe, which she now studies along with incense under a Chinese tea Master.

Makoto Taniguchi

Makoto Taniguchi is a Tokyo based artist who finished his studies in intermedia art at Tokyo University of the Arts. His work is based on the imagery of girls in Japan as they appear as characters in comics and anime, and as heartthrobs and idols. These images of girls, passed down steadily to Taniguchi since his youth in the 1980s, are acknowledged as a common, general occurrence within contemporary Japanese society.

LARRY

Larry is a DJ from the underground music scene in Berlin dedicated to discovering new sounds and music cultures on the Internet. Her sets are clearly intended for an experience – without any loyalty towards a certain BPM or genre. In 2011, Larry co-founded platforms such as the party and label Creamcake, interdisciplinary music and art event 3hd Festival and インフラ INFRA.
