This exhibition explores Kon Wajiro's (1888-1973) visual observations of material practices in Tokyo after the devastating 1923 Earthquake, particularly drawing from his work Modernologio (kogengaku) and from his surveys of "barracks" (makeshift structures for earthquake recovery), by emphasizing Kon's urban ethnography, as well as its significance as a design-based methodology of recording material change in post-disaster conditions. The exhibition also looks at Kon's methodology as an educational resource, presenting student work produced in classes at Parsons and Aoyama Gakuin University. This exhibition is supported by JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
