[Nihon University Hakusandoori] / 日大白山通り


In Japan, 1968 marked a new momentum of student uprisings known as the Zenkyoto movement (All-Campus Joint Struggle Councils) that pursued individual goals as well as opposing the Vietnam War and the renewal of the Security Treaty with the U.S. The students of Nihon University were among the organizers of the movement. “This series of works began with Nichidai Hakusan-dori (Nihon University Hakusan Street, 1968), which documented the first demonstration that took place in front of the Nihon University Faculty of Economics, in May, 1968. It continued with Nichidai taishu danko (Nihon University Public Collective Bargaining, 1968), then documenting barricades at the Nihon University College of Art in Nichidai gei kodo (Nihon University College of Art Lecture Hall, 1968), to Gewaltopia Trailer (1969), which connected his own works and the world of horror movies with protests at the University of Tokyo and Nihon University, and Shinjuku Station (1968–74), which superimposed scenes of an uprising in Shinjuku on International Antiwar Day (October 21, 1968). At times there are continuous shots, but these works are primarily composed entirely of series of stills, so it is difficult to grasp what is occurring and where the camera is pointing."—Go Hirasawa, "Moment When a Singularity is Born: Essay on Jonouchi Motoharu,” Collaborative Cataloging Japan, April 10, 2019,
