PungJungGak (Wind-Meaning Engraving) – by 11 Dance Project / Joowon Song
opening at 7:30 pm & finissage 29.11. at 5pm
Transitional Justice is a project that brings to the foreground the eponymous concept that is the attempt of a given society to come to terms with past abuses in order to establish accountability, justice and reach reconciliation. It follows as second part of a series of events regarding the issue “society in transition”, created by NON Berlin and HEKO e.V. The event consists of three parts, an exhibition, a performance and a conference.
The concept of transitional justice is employed since the 1990’s and has been in use through different transitional societies. Coming to terms with a difficult and violent past, one can understand it as overcoming the past while working towards reconciliation. In that sense transitional justice does not solely focus on the past but also on shaping the future, engaging with victims and offenders.
The exhibition will present the work of CHAN SOOK CHOI* and a performance by 11 DANCE PROJECT**.
Artist Chan Sook Choi will present video works that are based on biographical transitions as motivated by upheavals of political systems and their influences on private life.
The „PungJungGak“-Series of 11 Dance Project is telling the universal story about humanity and the localisation of people.
