Summary
"A cultural history of the relationship between art and politics in Japan, 1945-1960. Highlights the transformational nature of the early postwar period against the relative stasis, consolidation, and homogenization of the 1960s. Provides insight into the present by focusing on a period similarly characterized by decentralization and de-professionalization of culture and expansion of conceptions of what art is and who should be doing it"-- Provided by publisher.
