This publication accompanies the symposium and exhibition, Art & Capital: Spiritual Odyssey that took place in Seoul, Korea in February 2008.  The symposium (forum/seminars) covered the topics of art and money such as:  the future overlap of the art market and mainstream markets (stocks, real estate, etc.) in Asia, the Chinese contemporary art market, Indian art and the global economy, and the effects of biennials, triennials, art fairs and art prizes.  The exhibition was held at Alternative Space LOOP, and the catalogue includes colour plates of works by the exhibiting artists and brief explanatory essays by Hongik University students.   Curriculum Vitae of artists and curators is found at the end.
