Abstract
Some artists like to create works which do not look and sound like traditional Western art and music. People call those works “anti-art” often, and they were especially popular in the 1960s in Japan. The 1960s was a very important period for Japan because the country was striving to recover from the damages caused by WWII. How did this social and historical background in the country affect anti-art movements in Japan? How did Western culture affect Japanese anti-art movements? These questions will be discussed in this thesis. In contemporary Japan, there are also some works which have very similar characteristics to anti-art works created in the 1960s. However, society in Japan now is very different from the 1960s, and the purposes of those works are different as well. This thesis explores why anti-art artists and musicians adopted unusual methods to create their works, and considers the relationship between society and those anti-art works.
