Past Perspectives, Future Visions: a timeline

The second exhibition of Gallerie delle Prigioni, I say yesterday, You hear tomorrow—Vision from Japan, explores how the past is revisited and reimagined to inspire the future.

In order to contextualise the curatorial concept and the artworks, the idea is to create a timeline hightlighting handful of historical events that are not only significant in itself, but also happen to be the themes of the exhibitied artworks.

A study of modern Japanese history, current affairs and government proposals, from 1945 to 2050, was initiated to understand the country's cyclical process of reflections and innovation. This introductory timeline elaborates around two main themes: Japan’s economic rollercoaster and the its complicated relationship with nuclear, in both case showing how earlier events were used and transformed as catalysts for progress and modernisation.
