Looking Back on 10 years of Kyoto Experiment!


At a ten year turning point for Kyoto Experiment, the position of Program Director changes from Yusuke Hashimoto (who held the position since the first edition of the festival) to a collective of three directors (Yuya Tsukahara, Yoko Kawasaki and Juliet Reiko Knapp) from 2020. With this new change in mind, a retrospective symposium looking back on the past ten years and looking forward to the next five to ten years of Kyoto Experiment will be held by the “KEX 10th Retrospective Volunteers”.

The first half of the symposium consists of four discussions on Kyoto Experiment from the perspective of artists, producers, and critics (two of the four discussions artist editions). The second half consists of an open discussion, in which anyone is welcome to take part, focusing on the themes and issues raised in the first half.
