This is a catalog to a major retrospective on the subject jointly organized by National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and first presented at the former in Seoul. The thick outlined title lettering was inspired by a poster for an earlt 1970s Korean Avant Garde Association (AG) exhibition designed by one of the represented artists, Song Burnsoo. The cover reproduces a photograph of 「Happening with Plastic Umbrella and Candle」 (1967), one of the first “happenings” in Korean art history. The coarse halftone screen effect accentuates the documentary nature of the image.
