This is the catalogue of one of the four projects organised for the Gwangju Biennale 2002: Project 4: Connection. Published after the Biennale opened, this book not only serves as a documentation of the exhibition, but also an attempt to expand the range of discussion on the disused railway whose destiny is in a state of suspension and whose function in uncertainty.

Included in the catalogue are artist biographies, and a Journal of Events which is a record of discussions by citizen groups and city authority on the issue of the utilization of the disused railway, as well as a record of important issues on the planning of Project 4.

Other participating artists included: Adriaan Gueze, Alejandro Zaera Polo, Olga Tarraso
