Roughly 40 years ago, the artist Yusuke YOKOI learned the traditional Bingata dyeing technique on the island of Okinawa. Using stencils and colored rice pastes, patterns are transferred onto fabrics. These patterns are often inspired by Okinawan nature. Today, Bingata is a symbol for the regional identity of the islanders. In a lecture, Yusuke YOKOI will give insights into his work.
