Admission: 1,000 yen

[Editorial Department of "Mainstream" (Wareware Dan)]
Editorial Department of "Mainstream" is a lower branch of "Wareware dan," Kyushu Fascist Party led by revolutionist Koichi Toyama. Based in Fukuoka, they have published oppressing art magazine "Mainstream" and its extra issue "L'art pour l'art" since 2011 promoting "Founding Manifesto," "Art for Art's Sake = Closed Ward Manifesto" and others. Members are two persons, Daichi Higashino who was once a researcher of Futurismo then became a fascist, Sakurako Yamamoto who was once a researcher of Dadaism then became a practitioner of Dadaism. Nakazawa invited them to this performance event saying "I will accept any result of asking to you two" and "I do not matter whether the actual performers are you two, Daichi Higashino and Sakurako Yamamoto or not. Your boss Koichi Toyama's appearance may be accepted or fellows captured through your propaganda activity on the streets in Tokyo may come instead." (written by Nakazawa)

[New-Method (Takahiro Hirama, Shogo Baba, Masaru Kaido)]
"New-Method" by New-Methodicists was formed in September 2010, the original members of which were Takahiro Hirama, Shogo Baba and Hideki Nakazawa. In February 2012, Hideki Nakazawa left and Masaru Kaido joined New-Method, which is the present form. Based in Tokyo, they have published 6 manifestos and 31 "Multiposted Works" till now holding exhibitions and events. Nakazawa's 85 works as a whole of series "Source and Execution" were appeared in No. 1 to 16 of the email bulletin "New-Method," which includes guests' contribution and New-Methodicists' works. Sakurako Yamamoto, editor of "Mainstream" analyzed today's "New-Method" as "plain and frank, very effortlessly inhuman, with no shadow of gloom and resentment (seemingly)." Nakazawa invited them to this performance event without saying his anticipation, "they will buy books if they are invited to perform at a bookstore." (written by Nakazawa)
