The second concert of Chun-Hee Lee’s short Berlin tour took place at the Dahlem Museums, a location in the Southern part of the city that houses both the Ethnological Museum and the Museum for Asian Art. (At the time of posting, early 2016, some exhibits have been wrapped up, with the others scheduled to follow this year, to be put on display in Central Berlin after three years of hibernation – “The End of a Museum Idyll”?)
In contrast to the Korean Cultural Center (see my report on Lee’s concert there), this setting, which might evoke the colonial project of “collecting Asia”, was more formal with a large auditorium filled only partly. Nevertheless, the performance was great!
There is a short blogpost (in Korean) about the concert, which a much nicer image than I was able to take.
