About Jaha Koo - Cuckoo
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
"A bunch of talkative rice cookers take you on a journey through the last 20 years of Korean history.
One day when his electric rice cooker informed him that his meal was ready, Jaha Koo experienced a deep sense of isolation. ‘Golibmuwon’ (고립무원) is an untranslatable Korean word expressing the feeling of helpless isolation that characterizes the lives of many young people in Korea today.
Twenty years ago there was a major economic crisis in South-Korea, comparable to the financial crash in the United States and Southern Europe in 2008. This crisis had a huge impact on the young generation to which South Korean artist Jaha Koo belongs. He witnessed many endemic problems including youth unemployment and socio-economic inequality. Rising suicide rates, isolation, acute social withdrawal and a fixation on personal appearance are but a few of the symptoms.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jaha Koo - Cuckoo are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
