‘Blackboard Hijacking’ Art Performance

Instead of the usual mathematical formulas and other lessons, chalk artworks are filling classroom blackboards, leaving a lasting effect on students now graduating in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

In their “blackboard hijacking” performance, students at Musashino Art University draw the chalkboard-filling works before the start of classes whenever they are invited to elementary and junior and senior high schools as guest lecturers.

The drawings are destined to last only for a few hours as they must be erased before classes begin, but their fleeting presence leaves a lasting impression on the students.

“For one to truly understand art, he or she must actually experience it,” said Kazumi Misawa, a professor of art education at the university, based in Kodaira, western Tokyo. “The ‘blackboard hijacking’ is aimed at helping students feel that art is actually a ubiquitous presence that mingles with people’s everyday lives.”
