I went to the No Museum! No Life! exhibition at the National Museum of Modern Art which was quite interesting.  All about how an exhibition is put together ie behind the scenes.

There was a video about 2 Japanese guys moving empty cardboard boxes from one place to another.  At first I was how banal it was then I couldn’t stop laughing.  The absurdity and futility of menial tasks that just have to be done to accomplish something.  And the Japanese do it so gallantly!!

This was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (or MOT).  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to take photos so have got some from the internet.

I couldn’t resist putting these in because I have become obsessed with the Super Yosakoi dance festival in Harujuku this weekend.  The dancers hold these clappers – the costumes are extraordinary – coming up next.
