Japanese avant-garde art – free online course

Artist painting

Get an introduction to the key concepts of Japanese avant-garde art through this free online course with FutureLearn.

Butoh dance is practiced and researched globally, but the work of its founder, Hijikata Tatsumi, is relatively unknown. This is in part because archival materials necessary to learning about Hijikata’s butoh are not widely disseminated.

This online course will make use of a wide range of archival materials in order to introduce Hijikata’s butoh within the context of Japanese and international post-war art and culture. In doing so, it will both deepen the global understanding of butoh and explore innovative methods for dance education.
