Gijichon: Collecting Fragments

From Rhizome Artbase

Gijichon refers to the camptowns that have surrounded U.S. military bases in South Korea since the Korean War (1950–1953), which have also been the sites of institutionalized prostitution for American soldiers. Gijichon Catching Collecting Fragments threads together written text (narrative poem), visual text (images of gijichon), and spoken text (academic research) to create a polyphonic portrait of gijichon, demonstrating the apparent fragmentedness and elusiveness of that history.
