Neo Geography I brings together six new works by Swiss and Korean artists which revolve around the modernist architectural thinking of both countries, whose similarities and junctions served as points of departures for their productions. In these works, montage, new materialities, science and medicine, actual and metaphoric spaces form the intersection of new territories – a neo geography. Subsequently, fostered by the same spirit of hybridisation, the exhibition will take a new form in Seoul, Neo Geography II ( Post Territory Ujeongguk, November 2017)
