To understand something of this ambiguity and personal challenges, artistic collaborations in neighborhoods can uncover embedded phenomena, leading to greater understanding and acceptance of newcomers.
In today’s transnational circumstances, Joseonjok, who are ethnographically between Chinese and Korean, as well as South and North Korean, migrate all over the world in search of a better life. Thus, reconsidering Joseonjok as a homogeneous group or independent community as Chinese and Koreans will be worthwhile.
Above all this exhibition aims to reverse power relations. In line with counter power, artists will make artwork with the Joseonjok community to raise awareness of their existence in hopes of leading people beyond assumptions about the Joseonjok community.
