Tama Art University
3-15-34 Kaminoge,Setagaya-ku,Tokyo 158-8558, Japan/ 8133.702.1141/ www.tamabi.ac.jp
Freedom is a matter of the greatest significance, not least because without it there can be no art. Since its inception, Tama Art University has been dedicated to the pursuit of both freedom and art. However, the concept of freedom incorporated in the university’s ideology is not a gift, but an obligation. Without exercising strong personal will, freedom is reduced to nothing more than a means to an end. Will creates freedom, and freedom fosters will. This dialectic forms a strong current underlying the activities of Tama Art University.
