I came across this cryptic poster today near Lincoln Center. The QR code leads you to this website, which explains that it’s part of a campaign created by New York-based visual artist Chang-Jin Lee to remember the victims of Japanese sexual slavery during World War II and to raise broader awareness of sexual violence during wartime. The campaign will culminate this Wednesday afternoon at Columbia University with the screening of a mini-documentary produced by Lee that includes interviews with “comfort women” survivors and a former Japanese soldier. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Columbia history professor Charles Armstrong.
