WANDERLUST: A Never Ending Journey to the Other Side of the Hill
23 June - 12 August 2012
The Artsonje Center in Seoul is pleased to present WANDERLUST: A Never Ending Journey to the Other Side of the Hill from June 23 to August, 2012.
WANDERLUST is an exhibition project developed in Belgium and realized in close collaboration with Samuso in Seoul. It is focused on five major Belgian visual artist, among whom some of the most influential classical figures in Western art history of the 20th century such as Marcel Broodthaers and Panamarenko.
WANDERLUST is probably one of the most beautiful words in the German language and is universally understood as referring to a profound desire to leave the conventions of everyday life behind, in order to discover other cultures and other habits. It could be said that WANDERLUST is as old as mankind, however it obtained a particular meaning when at the beginning of the 19th century the artists of German romanticism embraced it as a key concept in their struggle against the cold heritage of rationalism and the age of enlightenment.
Participating Artists: Francis Alys, Marcel Broodthaers, Honore d'O, Joelle Tuerlinckx, Panamarenko.
Curators: Prof. Hans Maria de Wolf and Samuso.
