Deptford X, project space, Brookmill Road, Deptford SE4

Ticket : £7 / £5 (concession for students and the unwaged)

A ticket includes screening, drinks & popcorn.


Art Action UK 2019 Residency Award winner Satoshi Hashimoto will introduce his art practice and discuss art, politics and marginalised groups in current Japan, focusing on the pervasive nature of racial/sexual discriminations, and how artists are responding to these situations.

Morgan Quaintances film Letter from Tokyo focuses on how arts initiatives are working with communities at the margins of society, and what public space means in a culture where the notion of public is not a given.



Satoshi Hashimoto is an artist, activist, curator, researcher based in Tokyo, operating internationally. Often taking performative and audience participatory approaches, Hashimoto's practice goes beyond normative understanding of art. His recent project include, “198 Methods of Abstract Direct Action”, “Pie Charts: Everything and Others” and "The World’ s Three Major Round Things: the Sun, the Moon,the Eye"

He is a contributing editor for E-Flux’s online publishing portal Art Agenda, and was the 2015/16 curatorial fellow at Cubitt Gallery, London.
