The spirit of 'Mingei' in Japan


Based on the thinker Yanagi Soetsu (1889-1961), promoter of the Mingei movement and his son, Yanagi Sori, a leading post-war designer, this catalogue reflects on the relationship established during the 20th century between the rediscovery of certain traditional arts and the evolution of an international modern "design&quot art in Japan during the 1930s and 1950s.
