About 30 years have passed since Ryuta Imafuku published The Heterology of Culture (A Manifesto of Creolism). This pioneering work explores the impact of hybrid values and forms of expression on a society where different languages and cultural forms shift, intersect, and intertwine. And yet in the past 30 years, the sharing of standardized information has accelerated; we live in an age where the (in)accuracy of this information has a significant impact on politics and society. The author’s present belief is that there is a regressive trend in the world against hybridity and cultural mixing. In this talk event, we touch upon the author’s current perspectives, incorporating visual and auditory elements to provide a fresh outlook on contemporary society.
