The Museum of Silhak Summer Special Exhibition 《Hong Dae-yong 2017- Boundless Reason》
Period/ 2017.09.25(Mon) ~ 2018.02.28(Wed)
This exhibition intended to focus on the ideas of Hong Dae-yong, a silhak scholar who reasoned boundlessly in comparison with the ‘Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution’ that brings down the boundaries between people, animals and machines. This exhibition is the fruition of the continuous efforts to express the Silhak Contents, the repository of humanities, in the form of modern art based on visual media technology in cooperation with the Korea University of Technology and Education and Kookmin University College of Design. The ideas and world view of the scientific thinker in the Age of Silhak, Damheon Hong Dae-yong, were expressed in the form of media image, sculpture, AR (augmented reality), and video image (39 minutes) in collaboration with modern artists such as Kim Ki-cheol, Kim Hyeong-joong, Park Je-seong, and Yi Sang-hyeon. Even modern people who are faced with the fourth industrial revolution can share the transitional thoughts of the late Joseon Dynasty that scholars like Hong Dae-yong had.
