Beyond the Classroom presents "ANPO: Art X War"

Description:
ANPO: Art X War reveals the untold story of resistance to United States military bases in Japan through paintings, photographs and films by Japans most respected artists. These stories and their art depict the struggle against the U.S. military presence, which provoked a national uprising in the 1960 and still festers today. ANPO refers to the U.S.-Japan Mutual Security Treaty, which permits the continued presence of numerous U.S. military bases in Japan. In 1960, public resentment against the military presence erupted in massive popular demonstrations that were crushed by Japans C.I.A.-backed Prime Minister Kishi. A wide range of Japanese artists depicted this resistance with a rich archive of art and films, including many large-scale paintings long hidden from public view. Contemporary artists continue to draw on their predecessors legacy, depicting problems generated by the bases. The film reveals the extraordinary passion behind this buried treasure trove of art and films. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 7, 2012
