There is a Korean poem entitled “Gobang” by Baek Seok.
“Gobang” was formerly named in Korea “the storage room”, where people could store extra food or unnecessary household. The poet thinks back to former times with the objects in the “Gobang”.

An Identity is formed not by nationality but by culture, what we have shared and remembered. Then we can look at the object not only as functionally but also as a concentrated collectivity of narratives of the memories.

6 persons who are the second generation of Korean immigrants in Berlin, tell their story about the object, that let them remember of their past. The object is respectively connected to the Korean culture.Print
