What makes Tokyo unique? In the century and a half since the Emperor moved from Kyoto, the samurai capital of Edo became a modern city without any clear, overarching design. This ever-expanding, densely populated metropolis has been constantly evolving, re-structuring its infrastructure, creating new landmarks and reinventing its identity. How have artists such as print makers, photographers, film directors and writers represented its changing mores, ambitions, failures and disasters? This course studies the underlying values, issues and limitations of the city through close readings of art works, film and literature (in translation), and explore future possibilities.
