Creating, performing and examining “marriage” from an apartment in Tokyo

The performer and artist Mai Endo presents a follow-up to her 2015 solo show “I Am a Feminist” that featured video art and performances on the theme of feminism. To create this new piece focused on marriage, Endo will reside at Goethe-Institut Tokyo along with her husband, artist Goro Murayama. In addition to exhibiting their lives as a couple in the apartment, they will hold a wedding ceremony performance as part of a multifaceted examination of the system of marriage in society.
