Artistic Director & Producer at LUFTZUG
Born in Niigata in 1977, Endo produces unique creations involving music, video, design, and technology, deriving from contemporary dance/stage art. Since 2002 he has been involved in various fields of planning, working as an art director, producer, and technical coordinator. In 2005 he founded LUFTZUG CO., LTD. out of a desire to engage in creative directing. LUFTZUG began its work with the intent of "establishing a role as a media intermediary." As a bridge between people, technology, and ideas, Endo endeavors to bring productions into being that play a social role. LUFTZUG EUROPE was established in 2012 and Gallery Lugtje was founded in 2018 in Amsterdam. Endo aims for heightened sensual exchanges and ubiquity by removing borders around where he works. Endo's work as a technical director has included installation project for MILAN DESIGN WEEK, Baselworld, CITIZEN "Light is Time" (Milan, Tokyo 2014), and Exhibition "Architect Frank Gehry 'I Have an Idea'" (Tokyo 2015), Tomoko Mukaiyama "La Mode" (Bolzano, Taichung, Tokyo 2016) "HOME" (Groningen, Den Haag, Iwatsuki 2016-) "GAKA" (Terschelling, Kochi, Kozu 2018), Xhiasma Project (Kobe, Tokyo 2020).
