"Spectres of the State Avant-garde" uncovers the hidden history of the oppressive South Korean state's convergence with utopian architects. It explores the archives of KECC and presents four projects that symbolized Korea's national consolidation and economic growth. KECC's influence on South Korea's urban development remains controversial. The exhibition aims to confront KECC's contradictory legacy and provide suggestions for new forms of civic spaces in postdevelopment and post-national societies.
