DRP Leader Mr.Chankook Park (DRP) comment after his recent Visit through Bangladesh
—————————————————————————–
I come to Bangladesh and meet with a group of artists who work in Khunra and Chittagong. Students and professors of Chittagong Art Institute. There was a chance to talk in the mediation space operated by the deans and the three professors there.
Both students and writers are recognized as the work they are doing now, and the biggest worry is whether they can make a living.
I can understand the nervousness, but why art? These questions arise. As I entered the lecture hall of the university, the table and chair did not fit the situation because of the structure of the conference hall.
We all started to change the structure so that we could talk together and talk close to each other.
Would not it be an artist to react more self-confidently in the face of circumstances and circumstances than to be bound by the essence?
Below is a memo for Chittagong University’s lecture.
How do I make a different living condition?
Individuals are still being isolated within the sophisticated capital and bureaucracy.
Technology is developing at a rapid pace, but it is driven by capital logic, not by responding to social needs. It is bad because development is not bad but difficult to control.
Individuals are helpless against the system.
Somewhat hopeful is that individuals have media that connect directly to the world and can share values ​​and tastes beyond their territories. They can cooperate with each other and cross the territory of the state and capital from time to time.
joy. beauty. taste. Technology. education. We can create new territories by sharing our interest in society and the environment.
This is not limited to existing artists. Contemporary people already have weapons that can practice their own projects. I have a lot of resources to try something.
My interest is to create a concrete place in everyday life and to form an autonomous territory. The answer is not determined. I do not know. The process of making should be the answer. You have to try and fix it first and use the current conditions. It should combine wisely with the needs of the local community. It is regeneration.
Art is most important, but I think that art here should be ‘attitude, not art.’
Art is full of playfulness and excitement about freedom and playfulness. It creates various forms of communication. It does not get caught in labor.
There is energy to do with difficult things. Challenge new solutions. I keep making something.
Including techniques of living. To grow. I like to cook and enjoy. I respect the person who makes it. I am interested in the elements that make up cities rather than cities.
It would be interesting to create a base in various parts of Asia including Korea. This base can be made into a space that is solidarity beyond territorial conditions.
It is a good place to play and the price of land should be cheap. It is better if it is a decadent city that has a long history.
It is because we can share old wisdom with old buildings.
DRP is an attempt.
The nonArt butArt was a more aggressive attempt, but it did not last long. It is because it received government funding. I am doing another try now.
Robil and the AquaPonic Garden are among those.
I wish I had a base in Bangladesh.
Contemporary art was fun, but now it is a crisis. There is a lot more fun than art, and art is falling into a plausible decoration.
Everyone has a spirit of art. We need to find more abundant possibilities in art. Sometimes it is stimulating, sometimes mediated, and sometimes an innovative solution.
How do we create an autonomous form of life that is impossible with bureaucracy and the capital system?
It will probably be possible only with Art Spirit – Chankook Park (DRP).

방글라데시에 와서 쿤라와 치타공에서 활동하는 작가그룹과 만나고 치타공 아트 인스티튜드의 학생과 교수들. 그 곳 학장과 교수 3인이 운영하는 매개 공간에서 얘기를 나눌 기회가 있었다.
학생과 작가들 모두 지금 하고 있는 작업으로 인정받고 생계를 이을수 있을지가 최대 고민.
초조함이 이해되기도 하지만 그렇담 왜 예술을 하지? 이런 질문이 생긴다. 대학의 강연장에 들어가 보니 회의장 구조라서 탁자와 의자가 상황에 맞지 않았다.
모두 함께 눈을 보며 가까이 얘기할 수 있도록 구조를 바꾸는 일부터 하자고 했다.
본질에 얽매이는 것보다 환경과 상황에 직면해서 더 즉각적으로 자기답게 반응하는 것이 아티스트 답지 않을까?
아래는 치타공 대학 강연을 위한 메모글.
어떻게 다른 삶의 조건을 만들까?
고도화된 자본과 관료 시스템 안에서 개인은 계속 고립되고 있다.
기술은 빠른 속도로 발전하고 있지만 사회적 필요에 반응하는 것이 아니라 자본논리로 움직인다. 발전이 나쁜 것이 아니라 통제하기 어렵기 때문에 나쁘다.
개인은 시스템에 대항할 엄두를 내지 못하고 무력하다.
좀 희망적인 것은 개인이 세상과 직접 연결되는 미디어를 갖고 있고 영토를 넘어서 가치나 취향을 공유할 수 있다. 서로 연대하여 수시로 국가와 자본의 영토를 넘나들 수 있다.
즐거움. 아름다움. 취향. 기술. 교육. 사회와 환경에 대한 관심을 공유하면서 새로운 영토를 만들수 있다.
이것은 기존의 아티스트에 국한된 얘기가 아니다. 동시대의 사람들은 이미 자기기획을 실천할 수 있는 무기를 갖고 있다. 뭔가 시도할 수 있는 자원을 넘치게 갖고 있다.
나의 관심은 일상 속에서 구체적인 장소를 만들고 자율적인 영토를 구성하는 것이다. 답이 정해진 것은 아니다. 잘 모른다. 만드는 과정이 답이 되어야 한다. 먼저 시도하고 고치면서 현재의 조건을 이용해야 한다. 로컬 커뮤니티의 필요와 지혜롭게 결합해야 한다. 그것이 재생이다.
예술은 가장 중요하지만 여기서 예술은 ‘작품이 아니라 태도’가 되어야 한다고 생각한다.
예술은 자유에 대한 갈망과 탐구심으로 가득차고 장난기 넘친다. 다양한 소통의 형식을 만들어 낸다. 노동에 사로잡히지 않는다.
곤란한 일들과 함께할 에너지가 있다. 새로운 해결책에 도전한다. 뭔가를 계속 만든다.
생활의 기술을 포함하여 만드는 것. 가꾸는 것. 요리하는 것을 좋아하고 즐긴다. 만드는 사람을 존경한다. 도시보다는 도시를 구성하는 요소에 관심이 많다.
한국을 비롯하여 아시아 각지에 거점을 만들면 재밌겠다. 이 거점은 영토적 조건을 넘어 연대하는 공간으로 함께 만들 수 있다.
놀기 좋은 환경이면서 땅값이 싸야 한다. 오랜 역사가 있는 곳이면서 쇠락한 도시라면 더 좋다.
낡은 건물들과 삶의 지혜를 나눌수 있기 때문이다.
DRP는 하나의 시도이다.
nonArt butArt는 더 적극적인 시도였으나 오래 버티지 못했다. 정부의 지원금을 받았기 때문이다. 지금 다른 시도를 하고 있다.
Robil과 만든 아쿠아 포닉 가든도 그런 시도중의 하나다.
방글라데시에도 거점이 있으면 좋겠다.
현대미술은 재밌었지만 지금은 위기다. 예술보다 재밌는게 많고 예술은 그럴듯한 장식으로 전락하고 있다.
모든 사람이 예술의 스피릿을 갖고 있다. 예술에서 더 풍부한 가능성을 찾아야 한다. 때로는 자극이고 때로는 매개이며 때로는 혁신적인 솔루션이 될 수 있다.
관료주의와 자본 시스템으로는 불가능한 자율적인 삶의 형식을 어떻게 만들어낼까?
아마도 아트스피릿으로만 가능할 것이다.
