これまで東京藝術大学美術学部 大学の世界展開力事業 Global Art Crossing[中東]では、中東地域の提携校であるイスラエル・ベツァルエル美術デザインアカデミー、トルコ・アナドール大学、ミマールシナン美術大学との交流強化事業を行ってきました。
本プログラムには4校の多くの教職員や学生が参加し、開催されたワークショップや授業は、異なる背景を持つ者同士が「つくる」という共通の行為を通じて交差する現場となりました。そしてそこは、ある種の中立的で浮遊感のある特別な現場」「levitated space」とも呼称できる場に見えました。


Global Art Crossing[Middle East] of Tokyo University of Arts is an exchange program which was implemented between 2015 and 2019 with our partner universities in the Middle East as the Inter-University Exchange Project aimed at the enhancement of the university’s globalization capacity. The participated universities are Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel, and Anadolu University and Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in Turkey. And many faculty members and students from the four schools participated in this program, the workshops and classes became the place where people with different backgrounds intersected through the act of “creation”, which is common among them regardless of cultural differences. This place also seems to have become a kind of neutral, floating and special space that we can call as a “levitated space”. The participants seemed to have positively established this space by exchanging ideas and thoughts to complement various social and historical issues.

The purpose of this exhibition is to introduce the contents of the exchange program between the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and the Tokyo University of the Arts, Thus, this is composed of artworks created by the faculty members and students who visited each other’s universities and some new members who will develop future programs. We hope that this exhibition will prospect the future exchanges between the two universities, while looking back on the past workshops that influenced each other.
