Art Space Pool, formerly called Alternative Space Pool, was founded in April 1999 in Seoul by around 20 local artists, curators, critics, writers and thinkers. It is not just a physical space for staging contemporary art exhibitions, but a discursive site and spiritual community of a group of local artists dedicated to socially engaged art practices and post-colonial art criticism in modern and contemporary art history of Korea. This publication compiles texts and images linked to Art Space Pool's programming in 2010. Some essays are in Korean only. Also includes a chronology of its activities from 1999 to 2009, in Korean.
