2014 Creative Talents Open Call selected Artist

Nine Eglantine Yamamoto-Masson is a Berlin-based French-Japanese artist, curator and external PhD candidate (Buitenpromovendus) at ASCA. Previously she studied at the universities of Paris Sorbonne, Berlin Humboldt, NYU, London Goldsmiths and Tokyo Waseda.

In academic research and artistic and activist practice, and drawing from Digital Humanities and Sound Studies approaches, she examines epistemologies of historical memory and counter-narratives in postwar and contemporary Japan, its state-enforced historical taboos and amnesia, and how these affect the contemporary in its various constellations, with particular focus on the relations with its neighbors in Asia-Pacific.

Her work is invested in the potential of art to offer alternative avenues through which to articulate socio- historical concerns, such as the use of fiction as a testing ground for reality and a strategy towards a differentiated understanding of the contemporary.
