Lectures at 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm
Please join us at the Portland Japanese Garden for a lecture with Christian Tagsold. Tagsold is the German author of Spaces in Translation: Japanese Gardens and the West. He will discuss his provocative and groundbreaking theories that the idea of the Japanese garden has less to do with Japan’s history and traditions than with the country’s interactions with the West. Tagsold, who has researched over eighty Japanese gardens in ten countries, explores their history, popularity, and shifting aesthetic, as well as that most elusive concept — authenticity.
