FINK&FRIENDS presents:

12:00-21:00: Videos by Agi Yuzuru from the Europe music scene in the 1980s
19:00–21:00: 0g (zero gauge) by Yuzuru Agi (JP)
20:00: Presentation and talk on music and design by Shin Akiyama (JP)

Yuzuru Agi (JP)
Influential Japanese music critic, editor and label owner, passed away in October 2018.
Born in 1947, Agi debuted as a vocalist at age 20. After spending a number of years working as a recording artist, as well as a radio DJ, he pivoted towards an editorial path and launched Rock Magazine in 1976, a publication in which he coined the term “techno pop” two years later when reviewing Kraftwerk’s The Man-Machine. That same year, Agi founded Vanity Records, releasing highly limited runs of now-sought-after records including a 7-inch by Brian Eno.
More than a decade after Rock ended its eight-year run in 1984, Agi went on to create several more magazines, including Infra and BIT, both of which focused on club music in the late 1990s and early 2000s, as well as operating Osaka venues Mathematic Modern and Cafe Blue. Following the conclusion of both magazines and clubs, he continued writing for other publications such as Remix and opened Nu Things, a venue which opened its doors in 2004. A decade later, he launched with edition.nord environment 0g, the physical embodiment of his 0g zero gauge zine, which covered everything from rock to club to experimental music.

Shin Akiyama (JP)
Japanese graphic designer, publisher.
With the architect-trained background he started his design practice on books in the field of art and architecture from middle 1990’s. In 2010 he dissolved schtücco, his design studio in Tokyo, moved to Niigata, and started edition.nord, his new publishing label. Actively participating art book fairs and exhibition in Berlin, Vienna, Bruno, New York, Beijing, or Taipei, he has also researched the art book movement in the world. He initiates the Japan Focus Library which introduce the Japanese good art books to the fairs at overseas and is founding board member of CONTEMPORARY (ART BOOK) archive/review.
