Social Labor

Film Installation

Applications for social welfare by young people in their 20s and 30s have rapidly increased since 2008, while some youth have become homeless and are sleeping in parks. In this work, a homeless youth who has lost both his work and place to live speaks of his memories of parental childhood abuse, and the reality of violence he suffered in the workplace. However, the homeless community in Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward which welcomed him was forcibly displaced due to gentrification by redevelopment. He then for the first time takes up a video camera himself, filming the destruction of his own shelter (tent).
