Nam June Paik (Paik Nam-June) represents Korean contemporary art, but only becoming a solid case in the 1980s, 34 years after he lived away from his home country. Artists and their fame are often appropriated to be subsisted to political agendas. The story remains, unveiling the story of globalization, what is missing, and what voices are never recorded, in the mainstream discourse of Korean art history? 白南準離開本家韓國34年。他的蜚聲國際把他「送回」南韓,成為1980年代及往後國內全球化策略下的國際級大節慶紅人。白南準的藝術地位和貢獻不可置疑。問題是,著眼於他這樣級數的藝術家的同時,我們失卻了甚麼?誰的主體性被泯滅?那些有關藝術的實存被滅聲?這不單是寫藝術史的人的問題,是每一個人如何存活與政治機器中要關注的。

Linda Lai / remembering a free flâneuse, Joey Luk, a poem 讀了好些有關你的,懷緬的詩,給漫遊者。

Permanent youthfulness — a thought of no comfort at all! No certainty about the words I have, but those moments spent with Joey, a lasting imprint. Combining Joey’s writings she had shared in class with faint, ineffectual words I could barely utter, I post this buried poem today as a ritualist container for infinite nothingness. 這首詩是由我的文字和陸姵妏生前在我的文字創作工作坊裏分享過的作業的片段混合而成的。在黃花綠影之間虛實無分,是一個人?兩個人?多少種心情?精神思想記憶都漫飛無涯,涓湧成氣。除此,我對她的思念無以啟齒。十七年過去了,比我先行的學生還有幾個。…我總是為過去了的人寫詩。懷緬詩注定就是跟死亡手牽手的。奈何。

In response to continuous authoritarian governments, anti-traditionalist Monochrome Painting versus pro-social participatory Public Art were born. The irony is that dictatorship incited economic growth which subsequently created a new class of art consumers: art galleries were born, inciting a growing demand for new species art and younger artists of promise. 韓國南北割裂之後,獨裁政府的持續在藝壇導致兩種不同的反應。抽象藝術的出現以反傳統、反具象、反日本影響為目標;而民眾藝術則伴隨民主運動,把創作帶到街頭,強調藝術的社會參與的面向。同時,獨裁統治催生經濟,新的財富階級打開了藝廊的潮流,藝術商品投資化令藝術品種類擴大,發現新進藝術家的需要亦由此而起。

Korea’s 35-year long colonial history as Japanese occupied territory (1910-1945), followed by domination of the US and other powers which turned the country into the battlefield of a long Cold War, has every step of the way imprinted the legitimacy of art, thus also the relaxing and tightening of the circle of entitlement to artists. 2nd of a 4-part essay 繼朝鮮皇朝近二千年的「宮廷畫師」至深受中國宋明影響的「文人畫家」,辛庚珍進入一個歷史斷層,由日佔35年的殖民時期到戰後的冷戰時期韓國分裂為南北,藝術的存在價值以及藝術家入圈的合法性,看來都不是純粹的藝術問題。全文四部之二。

Define an artist. This is no easy question. It could be more productive to change the question to “Who is an artist?” or “Who has proven him-herself to be an artist?” PhD candidate researcher Shin Gyung-jin adopts a discourse analysis approach to trace the different meanings and usage of “the artist” at specific moments of history. How is the idea of an artist produced? Regimes of knowledge are questions of power control. Her archaeology focuses on Korea, on and off in relation to Chinese art history. 博士候選人研究員辛庚珍受福柯的考古思維啟發,重回多個世紀的「現場」去重新凝視不同時代建構「藝術家」的論述和權力效應。藝術家的定義的問題,變為「誰身體力行符合了特定時空的標準藝術家?」又或…。全文分四次發表。
