Tonight is the opening of Muneteru Ujino's Solo exhibition "Duet" at PSM Gallery in Berlin. 

I contributed two essays for this exhibition.

"Ujino’s “Radio Activity” – A Parallel History of the Material Culture of 20th Century Japan"

"On Ujino’s 'Duet' – The Reality of Imaginary Existence in Japanese Tradition" 

His new video work "Radio Activity" was created as a reaction of the incident of Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, which has a parallel history of the development of transistor technology in Japan. Made-in-Japan transistor radios captures worldwide short wave radio broadcasting, and orchestrate the twilight of 20th century material culture.
