“Review of Eye Eye Nose Mouse and Reflections on Psychiatry and Art in Japan” is just published.

I had an interesting virtual meeting with editor of Japanese and Chinese mental patients’ artworks at Harvard several months ago and wrote a review of the catalogue, as well as some reflections on psychiatry and art in Japan in Creative Arts in Education and Therapy. The Harvard exhibition is strikingly innovative. At the same time, use of traditional themes and subjects in the ancient and medieval period for modernization of Japan in the twentieth century was also one of the driving forces of modern psychiatry and art in Japan.
