The first survey in the UK of Korean artists’ films and videos attempts to unwrap the particularity of experimental film and artist moving-image making over five decades from 1960s until now. The series focus on the ways in which artists in South Korea have addressed the intrinsic conditions of cinema – namely duration and the collective viewing experience – and the changing social and political context that have defined the ways artists have been able to work.
This program was also supported by EXiS, LUX, Korean Cultural Center London.

Although the early cinema was not free from the charge of being indebted to the artistic neighbors, over the last century cinema could legitimately claim its originality and even disseminate its effects to its neighbor areas including dance, architecture, scenography, video art and music. This program particularly prepared for the opening of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul is focused on these effects from cinema to all over the arts.

Über das Konzept der „absoluten Geräuschlosigkeit“
In den späten 1940er Jahren besuchte der amerikanische Komponist und Künstler John Cage die echofreie Kammer der Universität Harvard. Dort beobachtete er, dass wider Erwarten selbst in diesem schalltoten Raum Geräusche wahrzunehmen sind, die vom menschlichen Körper produziert werden: der eigene Herzschlag, das tiefe Rauschen des Blutkreislaufs und ein hoher Ton, verursacht durch das Nervensystem. Auf Basis dieser Erfahrung kam Cage letztendlich zum Schluss, dass eine „absolute Stille“ nicht existieren kann.
