Online Conversation | Culture Care: Mending to Make New
with Makoto Fujimura
On Friday, August 7th 2020 we welcomed renowned artist and author Makoto Fujimura. Mako shares about the Japanese artistic tradition of Kintsugi which prioritizes beholding broken pieces of pottery before repairing them to create something new. He helped us consider how this season of breaking, and the repair that will be required in its aftermath, is part of a beautiful journey rather than something to be discarded or disguised, and how we can work to mend the fractures of our time to prepare the soil of culture for the next generation.
The painting is Bohemian Landscape with Mount Milešovka by Caspar David Friedrich, 1808.
The song is Lullabying by John Barry, performed by the English Chamber Orchestra.
