The Japan Foundation Asia Center organized the 4th International Symposium for Media Art, "Open Media Culture: Collaborations, Networks, Exchange," in February 2020 in partnership with the NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC].
A report featuring the content of the symposium is now available online.
The symposium aspired to introduce new trends in the respective fields in Asia, to reinterpret art and technology as another means for people to connect openly, and to widely discuss the possibilities for culture and art in the next generation.
We hope you enjoy reading the report.
