4--6 JUNE 2021
Bergborg in Milan
We are honored to welcome Bergborg in Milan
For some of you he might be only known for his blog [http://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com], where he shares some of his collection of vintage kinbaku-materials. The blog also offers a growing number of texts translated from Japanese into English, commissioned and edited by Bergborg.
Drawing on his academic background in the humanities, Bergborg in 2016 made a series of in-depth interviews with thirteen key persons in the contemporary Kinbaku-scene in Japan. Insights from these interviews have been important for his further historical studies of the field.
In June 2021, Bergborg will visit Milan and offer a weekend of lectures at the School of Rope. Many original books, magazines, videos and drawings from his private collection will be showcased.
Don’t miss this opportunity. Early bird tickets available.
