Concept of the Exhibition

The late 1960s saw mass protests against the Vietnam War, resistance by citizens and residents to the construction of Narita International Airport and outbreaks of Minamata disease, and nationwide university riots that questioned the political and social framework of postwar Japan. This special exhibition focuses on the content of the questions addressed in the diverse movements of the symbolic year of 1968 while presenting the movements as a whole and exploring their modern significance.
