Japan Cultural Research Institute
The Japan Cultural Research Institute (JCRI) is a non-profit organization that aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of Japanese culture by presenting the culture - art, architecture, music, literature, design, etc. - that has emerged from the long-cultivated spiritual climate of Japan, both in Japan and abroad, in our own words and through our own vocabulary.
We have published ephemera, a book in which seven people freely discuss ephemera, the central component of an artist's archive. The book is also available for sale, so please feel free to contact us about more detail.（The book is written in Japanese.）
We have published a book titled Anthology on Archives, which is a compilation of field reports by seven people involved in art-related archiving at museums and universities.（The book is written in Japanese.）
