Ob.scene, no. 1, edited by Kim Haeju, Kim Namsoo, Kim Seong Hee, and Seo Hyun-Suk (Seoul: Specter Press, 2011). Offset printing, sewn paperback binding, page size 200 x 285 mm, 154 pp.
Ob.scene is a performing arts journal focused on the “things out of the stage.” The text, images, and notes of each article are separated from each other and regrouped into different sections (and linked by graphic marks), as a way to force the reader to “perform” the reading.

The front cover is left blank, as a luxurious — obscene? — gesture of commercial indifference on one hand, and as a reference to the interest of the magazine (off-stage) on the other.
