ASAKUSA is delighted to announce the event with Makoto Kinoshita, Professor of French Literature at University of Hyogo and Japanese translator of Guy Debord's prolific writings. In this talk, Professor Kinoshita will explain key ideas of Debord's cultural critiques and its significance today drawn from his dedicated research and his own personal friendship with the artist.

, which he has co-curated with Asakusa.
The tour starts at 15:00 through to 16:00 at the gallery. Coffee will be served in house during the session.
