Begin Again

주독일한국문화원은 7월 1일(금) 부터 주영한국문화원과 함께 Begin Again 전시를 공개합니다.

오늘날의 상황으로 하여금 세상을 다르게 보도록 강요한다면, 우리는 무엇을 볼 수 있을까요? 불확실한 시대에 미래에 대한 안정성, 명확성 및 긍정적인 아이디어를 어떻게 전달할 수 있을까요? 새로운 멀티미디어 전시 Begin Again은 음향적, 시각적, 조각적 또는 경험적 자연의 혁신이 우리의 관점을 변화시킬 수 있는 방법을 보여줍니다.  

독일과 영국의 한국문화원의 공동 주체로 개회된 이번 공모전은 총 759건의 지원이 접수되었습니다. 

영국의 Alessio Antoniolli(런던 가스웍스 관장), Dr. Zoé Whitley(런던 치즌헤일 갤러리스트), 독일의 Dr. Andreas Beitin(볼프스부르크 현대미술관 관장)과 Dr. Sven Beckstette(Hamburger Bahnhof 내셔널갤러리 큐레이터)에 의해 심사가 이루어졌으며 6인의 작가가 이번 전시에 선정되었습니다.

전시주제

BEGIN AGAIN

Where does one turn for respite in times of unrest? What radiates permanence and clear perspective when uncertainty abounds? How can we imagine a more positive future beyond the realities of the current global experience? Which innovations, be they sonic, visual, sculptural or experiential, allow us to shift our positions, alter our vantage points and question our assumptions?

Prescient and popular science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin wrote, in her novel The Left Hand of Darkness (1969): “The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty: not knowing what comes next,” suggesting it is precisely the lack of anything definitive which propels us forward, searching for answers and widening the scope of new possibilities. The very process of questioning through the haze and fog of destabilisation, then, has the potential to shift perspectives and lead to growth.

A philosophy of existence embracing transformation similarly exists in the world-building of

Octavia E. Butler, another oracular voice in speculative fiction, who penned in her classic Parable of the Sower (1993): “All that you touch You Change. All that you Change Changes you. The only lasting truth Is Change.” What results is a re-visioning and repurposing that would have been impossible had there been only stasis.

In the literary traditions created by both LeGuin and Butler, epic journeys are undertaken requiring learning and adapting to previously unthinkable situations along the paths to freedom and self-knowledge. As present-day circumstances dare and compel us into seeing the world not as we previously knew it, what might we see through different eyes?
