The Korean Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) is one of the world’s most heavily militarised border, located between South and North Korea. On the occasion of the opening of an exhibition at the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK), titled Negotiating Borders, which incorporates contemporary art practices that offer unique insights into the political and historical complexities of the DMZ, curators Nikolaus Hirsch and Kyong Park will discuss art historical and architectural significance of the DMZ based on their own experience of curating exhibitions on the DMZ.

Nikolaus Hirsch co-curated the Real DMZ Project 2014 with Sunjung Kim. Kyong Park together with Cathleen Crabb curated the Project DMZ exhibition at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York in November 1988. Both of them have been closely engaged with the Real DMZ Project, a contemporary art project based on research conducted on the DMZ.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
