53: Survival of the Kindest: Nobuko Miyamoto – Evolutionary Processes

This week Julian talks to Nobuko Miyamoto about her art which spans all media and practices, and in which community plays a large role.

In this episode Nobuko talks about how she came to understand her own position in American culture as a Japanese American women, how passing as Puerto Rican in Westside story made her look deeper into the culture and community in America, how the black panthers spoke for so many people, how the Vietnam war shaped her youth and her future, and about how Art threads through it all.

The knowledge embedded in community is something that comes up a lot on this podcast and this episode is no exception, and Nobuko has such a deep understanding of community practice, and the benefits it brings.
