Le Bal’s latest exhibition Provoke – Between Protest and Performance examines the cult-photo magazine and Japanese photography of the 60s and 70s.

Japanese photo magazine Provoke appeared for just three issues between November 1968 and August 1969. This short-lived, experimental magazine was founded by a progressive set of photographers and writers Koji Taki, Takuma Nakahira, Takahiko Okada and Yutaka Takanashi, with the underlying idea of putting forward “provocative materials for thought” through photography.
