「New Japanese Photography」展は、企画者・出展作家ともに男性のみによって構成されました。本展覧会は、写真のコミュニティのみならず、メディアや日本社会全体に通底する男性中心主義的価値観・ホモソーシャル性に焦点を合わせ、写真作品と映像作品、広告や広報など公共のイメージに表象される男性のイメージを通して、ジェンダーにまつわる規範的な価値観の中でも、とくに「男らしさ」とは何かを戦後社会の変遷に照らし、批評的な観点から検証します。個人所蔵のスクラップブックやポストカード、雑誌や書籍などを通覧する資料展示も行います。

The “New Japanese Photography” exhibition was organized solely around men, including the developers and exhibiting artists. This exhibition takes a particular look at what ‘masculinity’ is from a critical standpoint in light of changes in postwar society within normative values associated with gender through male images represented in public images, such as photographic works, video works, advertising, and public information, together with a focus on the androcentric values and homosociality pervading media and all of Japanese society, in addition to the photography community. There will also be an exhibit of materials that looks at private scrapbooks and postcards, magazines, and books.
