堀 浩哉(美術家・多摩美術大学教授)


Kosai Hori

Born in 1947 in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture, he entered Tama Art University in 1967. In the same year with the assistance of his peers, he staged the performance piece “Self-Burial Ceremony”, with which his career as an artist began. He was also active in the Japanese student demonstrations of the late 1960s, from within which he became one of its' founders and subsequent leader of a movement known as Bijutsuka Kyōtō Kaigi (Artists Joint-Struggle Council) or “Bikyōtō”, which sought to interrogate the institutionalized nature of art. He began zealously developing installation and performances pieces resonating with the many issues and phenomena emerging “on the borderlines” of the society and the art of “here and now”. His works have been shown at numerous international exhibitions, including the 1977 Paris Biennale and the 1984 Venice Biennale. In 2002 he was appointed a professor at Tama Art University. When 3331 Arts Chiyoda was founded, he established the “Akibatamabi21” alternative space managed by Tama Art University and served as its founding producer.
