"Self-Portrait" by JUNG Kangja is currently on view at the collection exhibition, taking place at Seoul Museum of Art. “We were young, and believed that we could do anything for cultural justice.” ― JUNG Kangja
'The New Exhibition Coterie' and 'The Fourth Group', two art groups JUNG belonged in the 1960s, were the first collective initiatives to resist against the conservative older generation. This self-portrait expresses the artist’s deepest inner emotions on conflicts between the established system and artistic freedom, and limitations of such individual subjectivity and social walls.
