Onceness in art and the reality
I was born in Hiroshima-city in "1963", I am not from their generation. They did not receive anything supports from the Japanese government, of coures, as well as the USA government, there were no official supports, after the end of the war. People had no choice but to organize themselves and survive. I don't believe in nationalism, that gives us never solution. There were only through non-governmental support, but it was international.
The appearance was not important in the account of `beauty´. We explored on human beauty, it was beings in the environment subjectivity. For example, At first glance, the effects of radioactivity are incomprehensible. Discrimination against A-bomb survivors, such as a woman in A-bomb survivors could not marrige. It is undecidable that the children of the A-bomb survivors would have disabilities.
How Umberto Eco worked, at the time, the religion (godness) had still the power towards their world view. After then, it was the ideology, had really the power towards their utopia.
If I paint on canvas ”August 6th 1945, at 8:15 am (JST)", that is not onceness. Probably memorialized, or was specified historically or politically, which is not for imagination and not emotional,
Political in the art that is not the action of against or does not emotionalize, but rather only one sentence ”August 6th 1945, at 8:15 am (JST)" would start a political dialogue and deal with reality. (Without the date of the event, does not start to recognize anything in official such as in the law.) Art is not evidence of history. "August 6th 1945, at 8:15 am (JST)" today in 2021, I think it does not give much meaning, that is actuality. However, the new conflict and the nuclear war are always probably.
A question is "What is imagination?", is a neuroscientific question. ...Because imagination is not for and by "Neugierigkeit", maybe it can be Begeisterung from pathetic expression.
My perspective from August 6th 1945, at 8:15 am (JST) in the centre of Hiroshima-city is on Colonialism, Fascism, Imperialism, Ideologies, Capitalism historically, but the biological aspect.
"August 6th 1945, at 8:15 am (JST)" is our reality, in which of the worldview since modernism finally, that was the starting point of Apocalypse in the 20th century literary. Therefore the critical theories need to be from the aspect of biology in reality and its environment, was our nessesarity (Notwendigkeit der Kunst, Kunst eher im Leben).
For my family, the choice of religion is personal freedom. Therefore, there are various types such as Buddhist, Shintoist, Christian (Catholic and Protestant), and Atheist. The religion of my family is Zen Buddhism. My name is Erika (who has not blond hair, has black hair.), since I was born, was wishing for transculturality. So, I created an atheist account in my family.
Practical question in my age is, such as my brother's question to me, How would I like to have my death ceremony, Buddhist? or Christian? or other formalism? or Semi-formalism? and in where? Before it would happen I need to think about the formalist by myself in my family. In Germany, even the atheist, they belong in/with the Christian from this aspect, that is the culture. It is the same as the case of Marriage and Divorce. So that formalism was higher in aesthetics, formalism did not originate in the war (fighting), formalism was on born (life) and death metaphysically (in geocentrism or heliocentrism). -> Question for the metaphysics in heliocentric theory and its ethics and aesthetics in the 21st century
In fact, buying a grave and its ground is as expensive as buying a house. So, there are public, communal, private and many other forms. There were capitalists and communists accounts (A capitalists account is the capitalisation of own material and its creditworthiness. A communists account is rather commonality.), today, there is also semi-formalist account, and others e.g. digital formalist account in this context. However, a grave was in the account of immaterility till today. It is the same as in the case of birth. So, I need formalism, therefore I need an account of semi-formalism. Semi-formalism is not a new, it was also in Neue Kunst, since modernism. (We don't need to live with the conservative way, that is just my critical aspect towards commercialization of immateriality as a new culture.) -> Whether I can solve and explore the Question for the metaphysics in heliocentric theory and its ethics and aesthetics in the 21st century. Thereby my account is Zen account by my family in Japan. In this aspect, physically, I am still in-between of Christian account in Germany and Zen account in Japan or in semi-formalism.
In the cultural history, formalism, we can see in Cemetery, that is 'in-situ' of study of sculpture historically. Who could develop this formalism, was by Monarchy historically. e.g. Piramide in Egypt, all over the world, that called world 'high culture'.
My mother was five years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.
She had deep trauma and she was hospitalized (She attempted suicide at the Hiroshima memorial peace park, jumped into the river when I was a child because she started to see the ghosts every day. We lived in front of the Hiroshima memorial peace park, a few years later after this accident, we moved from there. I could go there, but my mother can never go there. She has no memory of that days. I could understand that it was the days, would become mad.), but she trained in the temple and she earned the certfication. She has been allowed to preach (得道) and to have a temple, but she did not become a nun as a profession.
I cannot see it, but my mother see it. She cannot go to around the Hiroshima memorial peace park even today, because she sees the ghosts there. She lost her memory of the day, at the day in Hiroshima-city, when she looked for her family with her mother. She was still 5 years old. If she does not go to there (in place), she does not see the ghosts.
She lives in Hiroshima-city, has the profession, and she works even today. In Hiroshima-city, there was no the Japanese Imperial plutocrats at the time, as well as before the second world war. Maybe, there was the relationship with the Japanese Imperial plutocrats in Kure-city at the time, because of the factory of Mistubishi for shipbuilding, was for the fighting. I have no idea about the targets of the US military, there were some hypothesen.
World War II began with World War I. There was no way for commoner families to know about the war that has continued since World War I (Austria-Ungarn, Kaiserreich(Prussia)/Germany, and Italy against allies), even to this day. Who can talk about the war?
I am grateful to my family and other people in Hiroshima-city who never complained anything to me about the dropping atomic bomb, as well as about against the USA. It was really the starting point of ZERO for them (due to the shadow in the centre of Hiroshima-city). They kept working silently and silently every day. There was no other choice to live for them.
Today is finaly in the period of post-colonialism.
How did Humanity advance, in compare with 100 years ago?
If a third World War will happen in the 21st century, I think probably not the South vs the North, but rather the East vs the West. (From my experience, how different was the social system between the West and the East in Berlin? Changing from one social system to another social system is very difficult.)
To avoid the world war, hence, I think that requires us the time perception actually. In the 21st century, will we be able to change over the 200 years of the fate of the worst humanity through our knowledge, notion, communication, experience, relationship and technology democratically?
*Godness is a word, that I made, original mean was deity, the absolute power, that we don't have any more since 1945. 'deity' means really absolute, sometimes, it was appeared in the account of fascist or justice of good and bad historically.
In the traditional Japanese culture, there was the notion of Ghost (the account of Ghost), instead of "Zero", which we can see in the Noh and other literature, was the question for the mind, spirit (Geist) of a human, as well as the ego of human philosophically. (From the aspect of neuroscience in those contexts, I have been reading the thesis of Deleuze and Guattari, and communicate with Nechvatal's. That is a transculturality in the 21st century. Nechvatal's art criticism is to be an important aspect of my research.) -> Today these topics are studying in the study of neuroscience in Japan, for that reason, I research from two perspectives of Japanese and Western. Zeki has been studying together with a Japanese researcher. Therefore, Nanay and Wiesing are important current philosophers in terms of epistemology (probably a new and/or an ontological epistemology in the 21st century.) Nanay's is anchored in (Western) Aesthetics (philosophical psychology), so it makes sense for something new, but not a fashion, really a study, probably for a new study in (Western and Non-Western) Aesthetics (maybe, and I suppose that is current research "global aesthetics" of Nanay, after the end of art in the 21st century.
My mother is not conservative, she wants to be like me (to study on objectivity and subjectivity in the neuroscience), so she is studying and studying to actualize, which is important for democratisation of the society. My mother was only five years old when the bomb was dropped, but she suffered because she always blamed her for "because I'm bad, because I'm stupid."
Ghost(s), what she saw there, is an incalculable time and space, maybe in mind. But it was "1" not "0". (1 is an actuality, not 0 (Zero)* of absolute universality.)
*I am not the researcher of "0" (Zero), I need to study. Anyhow, from this aspect of absolute monarchy, in the fact, Jewish, they did not have it historically, but rather Isramism and Catholicism were/are absolute universality.
