Editors: Incidents (of Travel) dispatch #19 from Seoul, South Korea. Narration by curator Sooyoung Leam following an itinerary set by artist Jeong Yeoreum

In the 19th dispatch of Incidents (of Travel), Sooyoung and Yeoreum explore Yongsan, a district at the heart of Seoul, and the conflicted territory that served as the headquarters of the Imperial Japanese Army between 1910–1945, and subsequently as a U.S. military base.

Photographed by Swan Park, their tour departs from Yeoreum’s video “Graeae” (2020), using the AR location-based mobile game Pokémon GO as a way to travel both physically and virtually. By combining the socio-political history of Yongsan with the personal and micro-history of Jeong’s everyday life, the Seoul edition offers new ways to engage with the city’s shifting symbolic landscape.

Since 2012, Incidents (of Travel) has explored the chartered day-long itinerary as a format of artistic encounter and an extended conversation between curators and artists.
