The foci of this workshop are twofold: transculturalism and transmediality reflected Korea art through the spread of knowledge and artistic practice, and the circulation of artifacts as well as the theoretical framework in interpreting works of art with an emphasis on the materiality and their border-crossing.
By examining the production of art and its discourse in transcultural contexts, this workshop seeks to offer a broad vision of cultural translation and adaptation in Korean art from the Goryeo dynasty to the present. Synchronic movements across cultures, nations, and communities, as well as diachronic movements across time, will be thoroughly discussed to answer the following questions: how were knowledge, social system, aesthetic practices and artifacts translated across regions and times and to what extent were these systems modulated, what was a medium for cultural exchanges, and who were the involved in transmission, perception, translation, and modification of ideas and objects?
