Wong, Yoke-Sum (2012) A presence of a constant end:contemporary art and popular culture in Japan. In: The Ends of History. Routledge, London. ISBN 978-0-415-67355-6Full text not available from this repository.
The paper proposes a historiography that is read through Japanese contemporary art and popular culture. It is not a historiography of Japanese history per se but posits a vantage point using Japanese art and pop culture to offer a different narrative of the ‘end of history’. Neither teleological or cyclical, what does a ‘Superflat’ history mean, and how does it help contribute to different ways of thinking about time and modernity that is neither Eastern or Western in categorical description.
