Encounter: "End of the Century in Japan"

Encounter: "End of the Century in Japan"

Which image from Japan arrived in Europe at the end of the 19th century? Before we learned about writers' witnesses such as Lafcadio Hearn, Pierre Loti or Rudyard Kipling, an exceptional woman went ahead of them, Isabella Bird Bishop (Boroughbridge, 1831 – Edinburgh, 1904). This writer's figure will be recovered travelling to Japan as well as her account of this interior and exterior experience and David Lechuga will accompany us with the sakuhachi flute and images of the period will be simultaneously screened.
