About the event
Transoceanic Memories: Disaster Haggyo presentation is the Amsterdam iteration of the 2022 Disaster Haggyo. It facilitates a translocal, transdisciplinary conversation on disasters in the Anthropocene from diverse geographical and cultural standpoints. Conceived in the framework of the 2022 Disaster Haggyo, the event will start off with introductory presentations from the participants reflecting on their experiences of mutual learning and the collaborative research process in Jeju and Ansan, South Korea.
The presentations will be followed by the lecture-performances from researchers and artists from across disciplines; Professor Chi-Hyung Jeon (South Korea) will give a lecture about Sewol ferry sinking in 2014 and data accumulated from Sewol ferry hull models by MARIN (Maritime Research Institute in Wageningen, the Netherlands) with a particular focus on the flow of data across different scales, regions, and disciplines. Jan Van Eyck residency artist Chih-Chung Chang (Taiwan), who led collective fieldwork alongside the coastlines of Jeju for Disaster Haggyo will be talking about shipwrecks and contemporary high-sea issues in understanding East Asian History, national borders, and state power. Yunjoo Kwak (South Korea)’s presentation, Unfinished Odyssey – Becoming Stones will discuss her long-term research process reflecting on geo-political narratives running between the Netherlands, Indonesia and Korea; military conflicts around the world; legacies of colonialism, memory, and migration.
The event will be accompanied by Mobile Scenarios for the Metamorphic Beings, curated by Juhyun Cho (Curatorial Director ARKO), which consists of three artworks referring to the key questions raised by the participants.

About Disaster Haggyo
Disaster Haggyo (재난 학교 災難學校; pronounced jae-nan-hag-gyo in Korean) is a disaster studies school sponsored by the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and Arts Council Korea, aimed at accelerating the implementation of cutting-edge disaster research for maximum benefit to communities. It draws social scientists, engineers, and artists together for collaborative research and facilitates deep learning in the ways that disaster history shapes the present vulnerabilities and strengths of a community. Framer Framed partnered with Drifting Curriculum and KAIST Center for Anthropocene Studies to co-curate the artistic workshops of the 2022 Disaster Haggyo summer school.
Joined by artists, researchers and students from diverse backgrounds, the Disaster Haggyo summer school took place on the KAIST campus, with a multi-day trip to Jeju Island and a day trip to Ansan, South Korea from August 14-21, 2022.
The artistic workshops of Disaster Haggyo are each based on long-term artistic research to interweave sceneries that traverses geographical boundaries. Disaster Haggyo invites you to join collective thinking and questioning throughout these workshops: What creative techniques can we mobilise to mediate human and non-human perspectives on disasters? How do we unravel and de-construct the narratives of disaster and re-imagine the alternative future scenarios?
Transoceanic Memories: Disaster Haggyo presentation was staged in partnership with Drifting Curriculum (ARKO International Joint Fund, 2021-2022 Korea-Netherlands International Exchange Program), with support from the Arts Council Korea, DutchCulture, Embassy of the Netherlands and CBK Rotterdam.
