FabCafe Tokyo is located in Shibuya, Tokyo. Machines for digital fabrication, such as 3D printers and laser cutters are installed in a cafe space where people come together. Each day, creators visit these FabCafes to meet new people, gather together, compete over their talents, and share a forum for presentation. They engage in a wide variety of projects that make use of fabrication, materials, and technologies that are unique to the region.
"Don't Pay for Me" is a risograph exhibition of 30 artists both Japanese and from abroad. As we increasingly see content through screens, we want to question the value of physically interacting with artwork. With the exhibition concept "Don't Pay for Me", we aim to recall experiences of injustice or imbalance of equality, and begin a conversation from here among us.
This exhibition and event series at FabCafe Tokyo is an opportunity to view the Hong Kong protests as a form of creative practice, or even a creative explosion, while at the same time considering how art can both inform and be informed by a political movement.
Snowy mooncakes are a non-baked version of mooncake originating from Hong Kong. Unlike the traditional mooncake, it is usually served cold and the wrapper is chewy. In this workshop, you will learn the way of making this modernized traditional food!
