Mono-ha, meaning "School of Things" in Japanese, is an aesthetic theory originating in Japan in the 1960s that rejected values of Western modern art, specifically the importance it placed on the discrete art object created by a unique, individual artist. Korean artist Lee Ufan popularized the movement through his writings, proposing instead that objects acquire meaning and are given shape through space and location. In turn, specific locations gain meaning through the objects situated in them.
