  • A Bright Home

    The concept of “family” in Japan was shaped by a translation of the English word just as the country was moving into the modern era. This also added value to the “home.” After World War II, due in part to the introduction of home economics education, the ordinary home was recast as a place that was independently related to society. Today, the nature of family and home continue to grow increasingly diverse. While retracing their history and other conditions, this exhibition sets out to question and shed light on the state of family and the home in contemporary Japan.
