Unflattening (working title) is organized for the 70th anniversary of the Korean War. This exhibition seeks to examine overlooked testimonies surrounding the war and images of the people at the time, and to understand the nature of war from various perspectives.
The exhibition considers prisoners of war who chose a third country, dispatched servicemen who died in a faraway land, destruction of nature, women soldiers, and war orphans adopted to foreign countries. The MMCA has worked with researchers in women's studies, history, performing arts, and other fields to discover stories of different people who faced the ills of war and will present new works by domestic and international artists. The exhibition will also introduce works that explore topics such as anti-communist ideologies and conscription of South Korean men to examine the effects of the ongoing Korean War on society.
