Public Program:
Museum as Hub: Artist Talk and Discussion, “Dongducheon: A Walk to Remember, A Walk to Envision”
Date
May 8 2008
Description
Insa Art Space curator Heejin Kim moderates a conversation with Sangdon Kim, Koh Seung Wook, Rho Jae Oon, and siren eun youg jung, the four artists commissioned for the Museum as Hub presentation “Dongducheon: A Walk to Remember, A Walk to Envision.” Insa Art Space commissioned these artists to create new works on the subject of the regional city of Dongducheon in South Korea, home to a US military base. In this two-year project, Dongducheon is accessed from three frames of reference: an urban topology of the city; the language, speech, narratives, and memory of the “invisible” socio-historical subjects; and the role/function of art and artists in the construction of social subjectivities.

A public discussion of the Museum as Hub project will follow, moderated by Lee Dae-hoon Francis, guest commentator for the project.
