"Lavish yet scholarly, this book is more than an important new chapter of an emerging world history of 20th-century art; it's a vital artistic genealogy of our planet's current cultural powerhouse." -The New York Times"Korean Art From 1953 is the most significant English-language overview yet of modern and contemporary art on the peninsula. It overflows with abstract painting and political printmaking, feminist performance and on-the-street photography, and for each South Korean artist you know (like the video art pioneer Nam June Paik) there are a dozen to discover." -The New York Times"From Lee Bul to Name June Paik, Do Ho Suh and Park Seo-Bo, the roots of Korea's thriving contemporary art scene are deeply embedded within the country's complex historical narratives. A new book by Phaidon chronicles these developments, largely omitted from western art history, combining contributions from leading Korean scholars alongside works that reflect the country's tumultuous recent history."-HERO magazine"Global scholars and art specialists amass the first comprehensive look at North and South Korean art after the Korean War."-The New York Times Book Review
