9780415296878: Japanese Tea Culture: Art, History and Practice

From its origins as a distinct set of ritualised practices in the sixteenth century to its international expansion in the twentieth, tea culture has had a major impact on artistic production, connoisseurship, etiquette, food, design and more recently, on notions of Japaneseness. The authors dispel the myths around the development of tea practice, dispute the fiction of the dominance of aesthetics over politics in tea, and demonstrate that writing history has always been an integral part of tea culture.

Book Description Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 160 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Often thought of as a rigid ceremony, Japanese tea practice can in fact be creative, critical, performative, or playful depending on social and historical context. This volume illuminates the diverse appeal of Japanese tea culture. The authors examine tea in its many guises, ranging from a strategy for forging political alliances and gaining cultural capital in the sixteenth century, to a means of constructing private and public narratives in recent decades. They consider the role of the tea practitioner as art connoisseur and arbiter of value, and the function of the tea gathering as an idealized social gathering. They explore how tea practitioners drove cultural innovation by demanding new styles of ceramics in one period, and utensils modelled on imported Chinese pieces in another The book also demonstrates that writing history became an essential aspect of tea culture through the consideration of forms such as diaries, memoranda, manuals, guidebooks, and twentieth-century film. One of the main goals of the volume is to apply a broad, critical gaze to Japanese tea culture while avoiding the ponderous discourse common in many English-language studies of tea. It aims to decentre the highly mythologized figure of the tea master Sen no Rikyu, while also disputing the fiction of the dominance of aesthetics over politics in tea. As a whole, this book will appeal to students and teachers of Japanese culture and history, tea practitioners, and collectors of ceramics and other arts influenced by traditional Japanese design. Individual essays will appeal to specialists in more narrowly defined fields, such as the art and history of the Edo period, the material culture of sixteenth-century Kyoto, or modern film studies.
