The Hidden Cost of Prosperity – a winning curatorial project at the KCC

In December last year Anna Miyoung Kim curated an evening of video art work investigating the darker side of Korea’s economic growth – and possibly of capitalism more widely – in an interesting project called The Shade of Prosperity. Apart from presenting a diverse range of short videos loosely based on a theme – rather like the omnibus human rights film project If You Were Me – the project was interesting for presenting the video work of artists that maybe we have come to know in other media.

Kim, as one of the two winners of the KCC’s Call for Curatorial Proposals, has now had the opportunity to expand the exercise, introducing some new artists. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to revisit some of the works we saw last time, as well as enjoy some unfamiliar work.

There is an artist talk on 13 May.
