Naohiro Ukawa

Born in Kagawa Prefecture in 1968. Currently an artist. Since the end of the 1980s, he has been active in a wide range of fields, including filmmaker, graphic designer, VJ, writer, and university professor. Since participating in "Buzz Club: News from Japan" (MoMA PS1, New York) and "JAM: Tokyo-London" (Barbican Art Gallery, London) in 2001, he has presented his work at many exhibitions both in Japan and abroad. In 2010, he independently opened Japan's first live streaming studio and channel "DOMMUNE". With a record number of viewers, it has become a hot topic both in Japan and overseas, and was selected as a recommended work at the 2011 Agency for Cultural Affairs Media Arts Festival. Ukawa regards the act of filming, distributing, and recording the programs that are produced daily at DOMMUNE Studio as his own "present works of art." In 2016, he opened a satellite studio "DOMMUNE LINZ!" with a stage width of 500m at the Train Hall of Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria). Both have become a big topic, and DOMMUNE has participated in numerous international contemporary art exhibitions, and has been exhibited in London, Dortmund, Stockholm,
Paris, Mumbai, Linz, Fukushima, Yamaguchi, Osaka, Kagawa, Kanazawa, Akita, Sapporo, Sado Island, and so on. I am still searching for meaning. Over the past 10 years, over 5,000 programs/about 7,000 hours/over 150 Tera have been distributed, and the total number of viewers exceeds 100 million. In 2019, the studio moved to the renovated Shibuya PARCO 9F. Evolving into "SUPER DOMMUNE", we plan to update with an eye to the future with the most avant-garde technology after 5G.
In 2021, he received the 71st Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Award for Art Encouragement.
