Transcript of Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono Born February 18, 1933
In Tokyo, Japan STUDIES ADDITIONAL INFO Born to mother Isoko Ono and granddaughter of
Zenjiro Yasuda of the Yasuda banking family and born to
father Yeisuke Ono, a decendant of an Emperior of Japan, primarily
raised in Japan and educated in one of Tokyo's Gakushuin, one of the most
exclusive schools in Japan, which is for the imperial and other upper crest families aristocrats of the House of Peers.

In 1940, the family moved to New York City, where Ono's father was working and a year later her father was transferred to Hanoi and the family returned to Japan. Ono was then enrolled in an exclusive Christian primary school run by the Mitsui family and then remained in Tokyo through the great fire-bombing of March 9, 1945. During the fire-bombing, she was sheltered with other members of her family in a special bunker in the Azabu district of Tokyo, far from the heavy bombing, and after the bombing, Ono went to the Karuizawa mountain resort with members of her family and the younger members of the imperial family were sent to the same resort area. jhzgxdfjgvgvffggf ddfdf dderedeeeeeeeee

Ono attended
Ono’s work tied together destruction to interpersonal, mostly romantic, human relations. This form was strongly thought-provoking in Cut Piece, one of many actions she did as DIAS [Destruction in Art Symposium]. Ono had first done the performance in 1964, in Japan, and again at Carnegie Hall, in New York, in 1965. Ono sat very still on the stage after inviting the audience to come up and cut away her clothing, covering her breasts at the moment her breast began to show. Cut Piece included a disrobing, a denouement of the reciprocity between exhibitionism and scopic desires, between victim and assailant, between sadist and masochist: and, as a heterosexual herselft, Ono unveiled the gendered relationship of male and female subjects as objects for each other.
