Keeping Our Heads Above Water (Working Title), 2018-ongoing
Keeping Our Heads Above Water is a transnational research project
between the Italian artist Elisa Caldana and the Japanese artist Aki Nagasaka.
It started in Japan (Tokyo, 2018) and will further develop as a
shared research project in the next couple of years, connecting Japan, Italy, and Germany (2019-2020).
The project revolves around the theme of crises, namely the economic crises, which have affected all
these countries and created a common phenomenon such as the
generation called ‘Lost Generation’. By conducting researches in Japan
and Europe and maintaining our dialogues trans-nationally and culturally,
we aim to embrace this thematic in a globalized economic context.
