 【平安名純代・米国特約記者】米カリフォルニア州で沖縄が抱える問題を訴える県出身の池原えり子さん が、8月5日のオスプレイ配備反対の県民大会に参加する。この種の大会に参加するのは初めて。「沖縄で生まれ育ち、アメリカで暮らす一人のウチナーンチュ として、大会で配備反対を訴える人々と共に行動ができるのはうれしい」と連帯を期待する。

 池原さんは、カリフォルニア大学バークレー校博士課程に在学しながら、講演やアートなどさまざまな手 法を通して、研究者から一般市民まで幅広い層に沖縄が抱える問題を訴えている。大学院の研究で沖縄の文化を調査するために訪沖を計画。滞在中に県民大会が 開かれると知り、「基地負担軽減を求める県民の切なる願いを肌で感じたい」と参加を決めた。



 オスプレイ配備反対の意思を県民が米国に伝える方法については「重要なのは、県民と米市民をいかにし て結びつけるかだ」と指摘。「米政府は市民の声に敏感だ。市民レベルでどう関わりを持てるか、米市民が県民に共感して県民の声を発するようになるにはどう すればよいか。米国でそうした流れをつくれれば、問題を動かす原動力になる」とアドバイスする。

! W. A. R. ! (Women Art Revolution)

Posted by Fusen Monogatari on Sunday, August 21, 2011,
This is a film made by my mentor/Advisor/Professor, Lynn Hershman, who taught me the art of Art/Life praxis. 
Flemm Fatal was born out at the crossing of Inter-Art/Life Performance Art Theory and Practice.
To overcome fear, she said to push it beyond its limit.  Fear was transformed to Fierce. 
I have not seen her in years and am looking forward to viewing the film, but most importantly, to reconnect in person.

An entertaining and revelatory "secret history" of Feminist Art, !Women Art Revol...
