Parody and Intertextuality: Visual Culture in Japan Around the 1970s

The 1970s were the tipping point for parody in Japan. Already used as a technique for social commentary and expression by artists since the 60s, the satirical device came into the mainstream in the 70s through its use on television, magazines and in pop culture. This exhibition shows the proliferation of parody through manga books, TV clips, advertisements and posters, highlighting the works of luminaries such as Genpei Akasegawa and Tadanori Yokoo, amongst others.
