50 years of women living in an oasis in Saudi Arabia- "I see" rather than "I see"-

Saudi Arabia has a close relationship with Japan due to its connection with oil. However, the figures of the women living there are covered with black cloth, and it is still difficult to convey them to the outside. Fifty years ago, in the late 1960s, cultural anthropologist Motoko Katakura conducted a long-term survey in an oasis village in western Saudi Arabia, which was thought to be impossible at the time. Half a century has passed since the survey, and a follow-up survey is underway there. In this exhibition, the transition of the life world of Saudi women over half a century will be shown through colorful masks, folk costumes, and various living tools, using precious photographs taken locally by Katakura as clues, along with the latest survey results.
