This book presents the work of mixrice, a collective from Korea whose practice deals with the issue of foreign labour by engaging migrant communities in cities such as Maseok, Seoul, and Cairo. Past projects and exhibitions are chronicled through images, records of dialogues, reprinted texts from journals and blogs, and other documentation. The book was published following the exhibition 'mixrice Report: Welcome, My Friend!' at Art Space Pool, Seoul, from November to December 2010.
'The praxis of mixrice (Cho Jieun and Yang Chulmo, active since 2002, based in Seoul) operates in the intersection of migration, personal archiving and participatory workshops. mixrice positions themselves as a program organizer and a social mediator who integrates personal and collective archives of memory by operating diverse strategies of dialogues, gatherings, graphic design, photography, video, comics, murals, interventionist street performances, etc. In approaching the issue of migration, mixrice focuses on the tension between the sense of displacement and appropriation in one's identity and memory.' - excerpt from front flap
