Life in the Japanese City – a roundtable discussion featuring Suzanne Mooney

Thursday, 1st March, 6-8pm

What does it mean to live in the world’s largest metropolis? This roundtable discussion builds on the exhibition of the work of Tokyo-based visual artist and academic Dr Suzanne Mooney at Bloc Projects. Suzanne will be joined by academics from the University of Sheffield’s Schools of East Asian Studies and Architecture, and the Urban Institute.

Suzanne Mooney is an award-winning visual artist and art academic, based in Tokyo. She won the Aesthetica Art Prize in 2015.
