Biography Jiro Takamatsu
Takamatsu Jiro was an influential artist, theorist, and teacher in 1960s
and 1970s Japan. Highly analytical, intellectual, yet playful, his work
combines subversive elements of Surrealism and Dada along with aspects
of Minimalism and Existentialism.
Early in his artistic career, along
with fellow artists Akasegawa Genpei and Nakanishi Natsuyuki, Takamatsu
founded the collective Hi Red Centre (1963-64), which launched a series
of actions in Tokyo. Satirical performances performed in public spaces,
these actions were an expression of anxiety about the rapid
restructuring of Japan and to critique the country’s postwar mass
