works in the field between performance art and video art.

Jane Jin Kaisen: DISSIDENT TRANSLATIONS

October 8, 2011 – January 8, 2012

Jeju 4.3 is one of the most violent incidents in South Korea's modern history, and crucial in the

understanding of the Cold War in Asia. For decades, Jeju 4.3 has been suppressed, and even today there is

still no consensus about either the incident should be regarded as a communist insurgency, an outright

massacre or a microcosm of the ideological battles that led to the division of Korea. In the exhibition

Dissident Translations the internationally acclaimed artist Jane Jin Kaisen’s geographical fulcrum is the

Korean volcanic island, Jeju, from which she examines what forms both a cultural identity and a geopolitical

problem in the context of power relations, colonialism and historical displacement.

One of Jane Jin Kaisens films: The Woman, The Orphan, and The Tiger will be displayed every Saturday at

2 pm. in the project space of the Aarhus Art Building.
