Summary A survey of contemporary Japanese sculpture, examining the vigour and originality of three-dimensional art in post-war Japan. The book investigates Gutai, a movement in the 1950s that broke traditions and Mono-ha, the Japanese version of Minimalism prevalent in the 1960s. The rest of the book explores the works of some 90 contemporary sculptors, dividing their work into five categories, such as material, time, image, relationship and place. This text is based on interviews, studio visits and observations of exhibitions
