“No matter how much Trump yells about fake news, it doesn’t mean that we get less “real news”. It is countless. The individual decides whether it is real or fake.
I was introduced to Mr. Toda, who is the president of Den Juro, through an acquaintance.
Mr. Toda’s father was an art dealer for 34 years, in which recently he inherited his art collection. Mr. Toda had the art collection examined by a professional. Unfortunately, among them were identified as fake and thought that these collections were worthless. When I saw the works, I decided to see it from a new and contemporary perspective rather than the traditional art context. I re-evaluated the works and wondered if it would be a good idea to question “what is genuine?” to society.
So, what do you think, do they look fake to you?”
