NIHON UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF ART, EKODA CAMPUS
This lecture was presented as part of a keynote panel titled "The Development and Future Direction of Alternative Moving Image Archives in the U.S. and Japan" at Nihon University College of Art on November 26, 2016. The discussions focused on the history and the current possibilities of moving image archiving efforts by alternative organizations by comparatively observing methods, differences of infrastructure, and culture between Japan and the U.S. By encouraging discussions with the invited guest Professor Mona Jimenez of New York University and Tochigi Akira, Curator of National Film Center (Tokyo), we aimed to initiate an international platform to gather and discuss current projects and situations that face their work in organizing media archives in Japan.
