On Tokyo Medical University for Rejected Women
At the talk, she shared on the social and ethical implications of emerging technologies. According to the British-Japanese artist, her most recent work, Tokyo Medical University for Rejected Women was made as a social criticism towards the unbecoming social expectations for Japanese women and the country’s systemic discrimination which treats women as a second class citizen.
That was a reaction to a 2018 incident where Tokyo Medical University admitted to rigging the entrance exam in order to reduce the number of female students. The university mentioned that women tend to quit in order to start families, resulting in a significant drop of staff at a school-affiliated hospital.
