About
The exhibition celebrates the fourth anniversary of the ACC and the 40th anniversary of the May 18 Democratic Uprising in 2020. The exhibition sheds light on the values of democracy, human rights, and peace.
The Asia Culture Exchange Center of the Asia Culture Institute formed a network with other organizations across Asia, starting with the Democracy, Human Rights, and Peace Network Forum in May.
The exhibition is the outcome of the first cooperation project through the network. For this exhibition, the center is joined by the Liberation War Museum in Bangladesh.
About the Exhibition
The exhibition reorganizes fragments of Bangladeshi history in the form of an exhibition and looks into the hidden issues of women’s human rights. The exhibition offers an overview of Bangladesh’s contemporary history and a chance to discover and examine the issues of colonization and war shared by many Asian countries while looking at the experiences shared by Asian countries from the perspective of women.

In this exhibition, looking at history from the perspective of women means laying down religious beliefs and political ideologies for a while and understanding history as experienced by the “Other.” This exhibition’s aim is to show Asia’s contemporary history from the perspectives of women and other socially disadvantaged groups. This attempt stems from the desperate hope that we will not repeat the mistake of not respecting and protecting those who deserve respect and protection and miss what is truly important.
Curator
Sunyoung Oh
Sunyoung Oh is an independent curator who studies how art is connected with different areas and society and how it grows and carves out its place. In particular, she focuses on the relationships and differences of perspectives in the process. With these in mind, Oh launched Project 7 ½ in 2014 to study the roles of art in local areas and different societies using concrete artistic practices.
Project 7 ½ has moved from Seoul (Mullae-dong, Jangsa-dong, ARKO Art Center, Ansahn Indonesian Immigrants Community), Gimhae (Gimhae Art Center, Gimhae Immigrants House, workers and immigrants in Gimhae) to Jatiwangi (Majalengka, West Java), and is still on the go.
