The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture (Gendai Shikaku Bunka Kenkyukai), also known as Genshiken, was created and organized by Lasallians who believe that the virtues of Religio, Mores, and Cultura live in art. Genshiken was born to promulgate modern visually-oriented culture, with the belief that these can be useful instruments in channelling the Lasallians’ talent and love for arts and craft.
The essential goal of Genshiken lies in its dream to be one of the De La Salle University’s pools of talents, where students are given the chance to hone their creativity and love for their craft, and promote a venue to relieve their pressures through recreation and bonding with other Lasallians who have the same interests and love for anime, games, manga, and art, hence promoting unity among its members.
The group organized itself to foster a sense of trust in whatever artistic talent God has given each and every one of its members. Genshiken will therefore do its best to cater to those interests, by ordaining and promulgating its constitution.
