Climatization: Field Notes from the Short 10 Years (2000-2010) of Art and Making Things Public in Korea

This book is the second edition of a series focusing on modern and contemporary art in South Korea. It follows the first edition which focused on Korean Dansaekhwa, and draws a tangent line across the trajectory of Dansaekhwa as a genre. Without putting it in opposition to Dansaekhwa, this book looks at art or rather the field of art in a period or time when its “counter part”, so-called Minjung Art, came to be re-assessed by the following generations of artists, curators, critics and others at a time when it underwent extensive institutionalization – and internationalization – in the name of making it public.
