The show intends partly to take part in globalisation and partly to limit the focus to visual arts and the plethora it represents. The exhibition accomplishes this by presenting six selected artists, all Korean residents, and thus in a Danish perspective providing the Danish audience with an opportunity of experiencing how a group of contemporary Korean visual artists work. The artists utilize an international form language in installations, conceptual art, and videos while at the same time researching into developing and refining these expressions.

Per Nilsson was born in Gävle in 1963. During his childhood he moved often and lived from Kiruna in the north to Kristianstad in the south. In 2001 he received his PhD in Philosophy at Umeå University with the thesis “Nature Science and Reason: Dialectic of Enlightenment, and the other modern.” Since 2001 he has worked as a philosopher at the Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå. In his new book, The Amphibian Stand: A Philosophical Essay Concerning Research Processes in Fine Art . Nilsson develops a philosophy of art and relates it to the debate on art and research. He argues that art's critical potential and its dialectical deconstructive approach to including language, norms and philosophy render it suitable as a research discipline. The core of the book is the discourse theory developed by Per's metaphors Ampibian and Littoral landscape of culture, metaphors that point out that our cultures are the illusory positions of dogmatism and relativism. It is in the littoral landscape that the amphibians presented live their lives, well-adapted to their environment.
