Korean Comics: A Society Through Small Frames
Event detail

The exhibition examines the changing social relativities of Korean society from the 1950s through the 1990s by reading its comic books. Featuring 83 artworks of 21 of the best-known South and North Korean artists, the exhibit provides a running commentary that reflects the lives of ordinary people, at once joyful, satirical and penetrating. What shines most prominently through these works is an engaged and vigorous civil society in Korea, continuously challenging and energizing the status quo in whimsical and provocative ways. By doing so, they pay an important role in characterizing and distinguishing the culture, sensibility and sentiment of two Koreas.
