I’m so glad that we can start the global art joint project this year against the difficult situation caused by the pandemic.
Usually we have separate two units - London unit, and Paris unit. But this year we could have as one Unit together.Thank you for the efforts and trust, and friendship of the faculties and stuffs of all institutions.

We have been isolated for many months, and we hardly could touch the others. We miss sense of imagination through the touching and tactile.
During society distance, we depend on too much visual information, for example, we always checking news and scientific numbers by watching smart phone.

This year’s program is art as experiment: body in the kitchen. This workshop explore and reenergize the power of imagination by the body and connected movement, relationship with food and cook, starting from an ordinary activity.

I hope you enjoy the program.

This open studio is an open studio for GAP's 2020 Global Art Joint Curriculum (co-hosted by CSM and BAP).
In previous years, the program had been held in London, Paris, Tokyo and Toride, where each school visited one another at their campuses. This year, however, all the programs were held online. Despite being online, all the workshops developed in a way in which one could sense, through the screen, the body movements and things which took place behind the moving images.
