Contemporary Photography in Korea

In the 2000s, artists began to create surreal images including their own symbolic signs, or started using photos to capture their avant-garde art performances, showing them as individual works at exhibitions. @ http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20160717000341

Western Photography Arrived

“This Western photography trend was introduced through a myriad of biennales and art fairs in Korea, which served as a channel for the Western art trend to arrive in Korea,” said Lee Ji-yoon, the curator of the exhibition. @ http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20160717000341

Contemporary Korean Photography

How Artists Use a Photographic Sensibility to Produce New Knowledge

A rapidly expanding, dynamic field of practice—and postmodern theories of representation from the critique of an image's relationship to reality to its intertextuality. In the video, it will show the work of five contemporary Korean photographers: Seung Woo Back, Sangil Kim, KOO Sung Soo, NOH Suntag, and Hein Kuhn OH. The work of these artists represents new sense of knowledge for the way their photographs bring the artist's gaze and sense into dialogue with contemporary debates concerning Korea's newfound economic and political power in the world arena, and the cultural upheavals this development has produced. Korean photographers are actively participating in the production of a critical visual culture that explores problems of knowledge and cultural identity.
