This screening celebrates works produced by contemporary Korean artists within a wider global context, featuring works by the generation who came of age during the social and political opening up of Korea and have enjoyed unprecedented opportunities, cultural mobility and technological access. These works reflect on the original concern of early experimental films, yet they are produced and screened within the various new media exhibition platforms of the contemporary Korean and international art world.

Followed by discussion with Im Heung-Soon.
