William Marotti“Timely and Untimely Politics: Art and Protest in Early 1960s Japan”

William Marotti explores politics and timeliness by examining the advent of a critical art of the everyday in Japan in the 1960s and its links to political action. Out of sync with eventful mass activism, artists sought to create eventfulness against a state-promoted, depoliticized daily life in the high growth economy.

William Marotti is Associate Professor of History and Chair, East Asian Studies MA Interdepartmental Program at UCLA.
