I joined the Seoul City Tour organized by the Korea University Buddy Assistants (KUBA). Three stops where part of it: The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the Gyeongbokgung Palace and the Cookin’ Nanta show.
National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art
The major topic was about different kind of voids, e. g. how private voids have turned into public voids in Seoul throught the last 80 years.
Referring to the description of the last picture, from a philosophical point of view it is contrary to nihilism.
Even if voids look like an empty space, they can be a space filled with the sound of rain or the flowing wind.
As we have spent more time than planned in the museum, we decided spontaneously where to go.
While the exhibition wasn’t everyone’s favor, Cookin’ Nanta caught everyone’s attention. Unfortunately, no photos were allowed, but I highly recommend to watch it. I’ve never seen such a mess, especially not in an indeed unconventional musical.
Thankfully KUBA is planning further activities so I’m quite sure this was only the beginning of fruitful visits of places in Seoul.
