Jonas Mekas @National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Korea

The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) proudly presents Again, Again It All Comes Back to Me in Brief Glimpses, which celebrates the extraordinary life and work of Jonas Mekas, one of the true pillars of avant-garde and independent cinema. This is the first retrospective of Mekas’s career that has ever been held in Asia.
Curated by Francesco Urbano Ragazzi and Eunhee Kim, the retrospective will run from November 9 2017 to March 4 2018 at MMCA Seoul. Through a vast and diverse selection of artworks that comprehensively cover the sixty-year career of the Lithuanian-born filmmaker and poet, the exhibition looks at Mekas’s practice as an exercise of resistance to human brutality, as a pursuit of happiness that loudly resonates in these uncertain times.​
In conjunction with the exhibition, a catalogue will be published featuring texts by MMCA director Bartomeu Marí, P. Adams Sitney, Pip Chodorov, Eunhee Kim, Jonas Mekas, Amy Taubin, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Francesco Urbano Ragazzi.

Amo l'Arte in tutte le sue declinazioni e follie. Cuore bassanese e castellana d'adozione, rincorro mostre, musei e gallerie sparsi nel mondo che poi recensisco su Storie di Eccellenza. Come artista visiva mi firmo Ketra da quando ho preso in mano la china per poi traghettarmi verso altri media più sperimentali. Agatha Christie, Bauhaus e Siouxsie&The Banshees i miei compagni di viaggio.
