21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will hold "Translations Exhibition - Let's Understand 'Understanding'" from October 16, 2020. The exhibition director will be Dominique Chen, an information science researcher involved in a variety of expression media, who is involved in the field of art and design.

The process of "translation" supports communication in order for the existence that should not be understood to be able to communicate with each other. In this exhibition, we regard the act called "translation" as a kind of "design of communication" and present the possibility of accepting each other's "understanding" by creating a space where you can feel the wonder of the language you use freely and the fun of "interpretation" and "misunderstanding" that comes from it.

This exhibition will be held with the original session changed from the viewpoint of preventing the spread of new coronavirus infections.

This exhibition will be held by introducing a pre-booking system to prevent the spread of new coronavirus infections. For details, please check the 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT official website from the following URL.
