Ilmin Museum of Art’s Total Recall is an expansive project that brings together filmmakers and visual artists to present diverse modes of how art documents the world through the medium of video.
This project was initiated to expand the presentation of the Ilmin Museum of Art Documentary Archive in a more robust and challenging ways for both participating artists and audiences. Total Recall expanded the archive to an exhibition, screening, and a series of public programs. Ilmin Museum of Art has done a close collaboration with Moonju Cultural Institute SAII and the Korean Film Archive. The exhibition at Ilmin Museum of Art has gathered works by nine teams of artists and filmmakers through the keywords of recording and remembering, exploring the notion of documentary as a genre of film as well as a mode of approaching subjects in an artistic perspective.
The Ilmin Museum of Art has been one of the central institutions of Seoul’s dynamic contemporary art scene. The museum is housed in a historic 1926 building that has been used as the headquarters of Dong-A Ilbo over half a century. This museum was inaugurated in 1996 and reopened in 2002 after renovating the space for contemporary art. Ilmin Museum of Arts also aspires to collaborate with institutions from different fields of art on both domestic and international level, wishing to make ground for presenting the visual culture of modern days at its forefront.
