Abstract

Publisher Forum A announces the publication of the book Trans-Theatre, produced in conjunction with siren eun young jung's 2015 solo exhibition Trans-Theatre that took place at Art Space Pool, Seoul. This book represents the culmination of the artist's Yeoseong Gukgeuk Project, which she carried out over a period of 7 years, from 2008 to 2015. Yeoseong gukgeuk is a genre of Korean opera and musical theatre performed exclusively by women. It emerged in the late 1940s and became a popular performance genre in the 1950s post-Korean War period. The book Trans-Theatre incorporates texts extracted and modified from the artist's doctoral thesis, "The Politics of Gender and the Aesthetics of Dissensus: With a Focus on the Yeoseong Gukgeuk Project," and they discuss not only a brief history of yeoseong gukgeuk but also its socio-political context-one that spurred the development of this subject into an art project-through the lens of the relationships between yeoseong gukgeuk and performance theory and gender politics. Furthermore, texts authored by an aesthetics scholar, curator, gender researcher, and art critic attempt to analyze and evaluate Yeoseong Gukgeuk Project from diverse perspectives that examine the project's contexts, concepts, media, sentiments, and positions, among other facets. Last but not least, the book includes multiple exhibition views of the Trans-Theatre exhibition, cherished photos from yeoseong gukgeuk performers' personal albums, and captivating scenes from Yeoseong Gukgeuk Project's performances and exhibitions.
