Description This exhibition catalogue was published by ICHCAP and the KF ASEAN Culture House introducing exhibits unveiled at the “Alternative Identities: Masks of ASEAN and Korea” exhibition. Masks are representative pieces of a cultural heritage that has evolved throughout human history, transcending time and space. In particular, attention in masks, a human cultural heritage, is also increasing thanks to the November 2022 inclusion of “Talchum, Mask Dance Drama in the Republic of Korea” on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and the recent trend that pays attention to the meaning of “avatar” and “second character” in virtual reality. In this context, the diverse mask cultures of ASEAN and Korea offer an opportunity to explore cultural diversity and artistic values stemming from humanity’s universal aspirations.
