In his 2006 series Morimura recreates memorable postwar incidents as reported through press photography, harking back to his earlier 1991 work Slaughter cabinet II. In this DVD Morimura/Mishima delivers an impassioned speech, one based on the writer’s pre-suicide diatribe from 1970. The interconnections equates with Morimura’s and Mishima’s idea of beauty – the clash of two things.

Also included are the first and second editions of Mishima’s collaborations with Eikoh Hosoe, and Luke Roberts’ performance series 1+1=8.
