The much-anticipated first new work in 18 years by the legendary and world-renowned multimedia performance group Dumb Type
Comprising a diverse membership drawn from video, visual art, architecture, design, computer programming, Dumb Type was founded in 1984 and has since established a reputation at home and abroad for its multimedia performances and installations whose main creative figures and approaches shift each time. This performance marks its first new work since “Voyage” in 2002.

Formed in 1984, Dumb Type is a group of artists comprised of members from various fields such as visual art, video, computer programming, music and dance. Based in Kyoto, participating members vary from project to project and works produced are unconstrained by existing genres, introduced at home and abroad as multimedia art that crosses all kinds of forms of expression. In parallel with performances, they also create installation works and in 2018 their solo exhibition “DUMB TYPE: ACTIONS + REFLEXIONS” was held at Pompidou Centre Metz (France). An updated version of this exhibition with new works and archive materials opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo in November 2019 and continues until February 2020.
