MAWA Presents: Theory + Beer w/ Kae Sasaki - Traditional Japanese Aesthetics

  • Duke of Kent Legion 277 McDermot Avenue Winnipeg Canada (map)

Free, everyone welcome!

Japanese literary titan Jun’ichiro Tanizaki’s short essay “In Praise of Shadows” offers sublime and at times peculiar insights into all things delicate and nuanced, heightened by shadows and the patina of age. This informal conversation will explore and critique Tanizaki’s random selection of themes encompassing architecture, theatre, lacquerware, food and skin colour. 

Reading: Jun’ichiro Tanizaki, “In Praise of Shadows” (1933, translated into English in 1977)
