Hokusai’s thought: worlds seen and unseen by British Museum


Hokusai did not want to simply capture the world around him on the page. He wanted to bring it to life, together with the unseen forces by which it was animated.

To understand how he did it, we need to think about how he saw the world and what he was trying to say. In this lecture, Angus Lockyer, SOAS, will explore what Hokusai thought about nature, society, history and religion.
