Cultural properties and art resources can be found in a variety of places, not just museums and galleries. Universities are one of these places. Many universities have their own art resources, but they are often not recognized as valuable and left under-utilized or not utilized at all. What is the situation regarding cultural properties in your university or school?

This course is made possible and supported by the lsamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum and The lsamu Noguchi Foundation of Japan, Inc.

What topics will you cover?

This course will introduce the cultural properties at Keio University’s Mita Campus in Tokyo and trace the background of the creation of ‘Noguchi Room,’ which was a common room designed through a collaboration between the sculptor lsamu Noguchi (1904-88) and the architect Yoshiro Taniguchi (1904-79).

This course will draw attention to the particularities of cultural properties in universities through the example of the partial relocation of Noguchi Room (now we call it ‘Ex-Noguchi Room’ after the relocation), an incident that resulted from a lack of concern of cultural properties on campus.

This course will provide an opportunity to reflect on how to preserve the cultural properties in a university, showing the actual example of Ex-Noguchi Room, such as the conservation efforts being by university staff and conservators.

This course will serve as a practical guideline for using cultural properties. It would be useful for those who hope to utilize the resources in universities and strike a balance between utilization and preservation.
