"I'm Alone, But Not Lonely"

Thursday 24th November 2016
18:30 at Waterstones, London - Tottenham Court Road

Join the multimedia launch of "I'm alone, but not lonely" by Volker Grassmuck. This entertaining 1990 essay, now published by eeodo with illustrations by manga-artist Kengyaun Qiu, explores the rise of 'otaku' as a phenomenon of 1980's Japanese youth culture.

On the night, video work by artists Katyayini Gargi and Shingi Toya will join an ambient otaku soundscape by musician Christopher Smith. We also have artist, writer and lecturer Paul O'Kane in conversation wiht Hayato Fujioka (a specialist in modern Japanese Art History at CSM) to discuss the book.

The event is free and open to the public.

eeodo are supported by Arts Council England and University of the Arts London.
