Reiko Tomii is an art historian, researcher and curator, whose area of specialisation is the history of post-war Japanese artistic collectives. She was notably the co-curator of the exhibitions Global Conceptualism (Queens Museum of Art, 1999) and Century City (Tate Modern, 2001). She co-wrote with Eric C. Shiner Making a Home: Japanese Contemporary Artists in New York (Japan Society, 2007) and is the co-founder of PoNJA-GenKon, a network and distribution mediator of a research group specialised in contemporary Japanese art.

Joji Yuasa (born in Koriyama in 1929) is a composer and member of the Jikken Kobo. After studying medicine, Yuasa turned towards music and studied composition at the Experimental Workshop in Tokyo (1951-1957). The most important Japanese composer of his generation after Takemitsu, Yuasa played a crucial role in the development of electro-acoustic music of his country throughout the 1950s, and remains one of the most influential members of the experimental Japanese movement to the present day.
