Hifu no sōzōryoku/The Faces of Skin
This volume contains papers presented at an international conference, which took place in July 1999 in Tokyo at the National Museum of Western Art (NMWA). Organized jointly by the NMWA and the DIJ, its aim was to initiate a dialogue between Japanese and Western art historians and to address differences and commonalities in the meanings accorded to images. Perceptions of skin as culture-specific ways of reading others formed a kind of connecting platform for the intercultural exchange of ideas. In the contributions and discussions, images, skin and surfaces were read and understood as possibilities of assessing the state of society.
A German version of this volume under the title Gesichter der Haut was published in 2002.
