The 2014 edition of The Real DMZ Project has just been announced.
The REAL DMZ PROJECT is a contemporary art project based on research conducted on the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) in South Korea and its border area. Having begun with a critical perspective on the ironies that surround the Demilitarized Zone, the REAL DMZ PROJECT has extended its parameters by experimenting not only with new productions and exhibitions but also via dialogue and discussions within the humanities and social sciences fields. The long-term vision of the REAL DMZ PROJECT is to create a platform that not only supports a variety of research methods and studies, but also ensures that this research can be made accessible to both local and global communities.
This year’s edition will feature participation by Seung Woo Back, Jae Eun Choi, Seoyoung Chung, Florian Hecker, Joohyun Kim, Koo Jeong A, Dinh Q. Lê, Mark Lewis, Ingo Niermann, Albert Samreth, Tomás Saraceno, and Adrián Villar Rojas.
The opening will be on August 30 and will be on view through September 27.
