On Thursday 7th November, commencing at 18.30, you can witness the opening night of the Korean Cultural Centre UK’s exhibition Negotiating Borders which includes a variety of art practices which aim to provide unique insights into the DMZ. Curators Nikolaus Hirsch and Kyong Park will be discussing their opinions on the art history and architectural importance of the DMZ too. The event will be followed by a drinks reception. Although free, guests must register their interest here. The event will take place at the Courtauld Institute of Art, Vernon Square Campus, Penton Rise, London, WC1X 9EW.
This week will be the first of two where members of the public will have the opportunity to participate with, former 1 Million Dance Studio choreographer, Jay Kim.

To wrap it up, there’s a screening of South Korean film director Yoo Soon-mi’s work between 14:00-16:00 on Sunday 10th November at LUX in Dartmouth Park Hill in London. Tickets are £3-5. The filming is a response to the Negotiating Borders exhibition discussed above. The filming will display two works; the 14 minute short-film Dangerous Supplement as well as the lengthier 72 minute film Songs from the North. The essay films explore repressed memories and unresolved conflicts that take up political and social space in Korea. The melodic film Songs from the North also features images from three separate visits to the North of the peninsular. To see further details and book tickets, click here.
