To express field work that utilizes "Inclusive Design" method

The area around Chigasaki City Art Museum is sometimes referred to as "easy to get lost" because of the intricacy of a long and narrow road. However, in a project called * MULPA (Marpa), one of the low visions said that they enjoyed the way to this complex art museum rather than enjoying it like a maze. Taking this into consideration, we will work with people with disabilities and people who are often regarded as minorities in order to capture from the different perceptions and values the elements that the roads around the museum are complicated and difficult to understand. Fieldwork was conducted continuously from 2018 to 2019.

In this exhibition, the artists who participated in field work create a new work that they create based on the experience of actually walking through Chigasaki and appreciate using all senses such as sight, hearing, touch and smell. In addition, from the collection of Chigasaki City Art Museum, works of Chigasaki by Kogoro and Koyama Kosan will be exhibited, and it will be a place where the images of artists who lived from different times will be intermingled. Through this exhibition, we shake the relationship between the "helper" and the "helper" over the disabled people and minorities, and beyond the existence of a disability, everyone lives with a different sense. From the perspective of being a “characteristic person”, we aim to be an opportunity to recognize differences, enjoy walking together, and recapture the value.

"Inclusive Design"
A design method that involves diverse people such as elderly people, disabled people and foreigners from the beginning of the process.

<< What is MULPA >>
(Public interest) A platform-type art project launched in 2016 with the call of the Kanagawa International Foundation. It is conscious of improving the accessibility to foreigners and persons with disabilities to the museum while connecting with various people and organizations. The official site istp: // "> here!
