The spirit of 'Mingei' in Japan


Based on the thinker Yanagi Soetsu (1889-1961), promoter of the Mingei movement and his son, Yanagi Sori, a leading post-war designer, this catalogue reflects on the relationship established during the 20th century between the rediscovery of certain traditional arts and the evolution of an international modern "design" art in Japan during the 1930s and 1950s.
