The Tomoko Mukaiyama Foundation is founded in April 2007. The foundation supports new forms of music presentations and connects this to other contemporary art forms like architecture, dance, film, visual arts, photography and fashion. It is of great importance to the foundation that these presentations are accessible for a wide audience in The Netherlands and abroad. To achieve this, the artistic team seeks for collaborations with other artists, academic institutions and communities. The creations are often a reflection of our modern society and engage to social issues. The artistic force behind the Foundation is Tomoko Mukaiyama. She is equally active in Japan and The Netherlands; developing a unique artistic language and network through and with her foundation.
