Modern art museums can depend a lot on the current exhibitions and how you generally feel about the museum anyway. Some people will always hate them and some people will always love them and say really random crazy sounding things about the art as to what they are getting from it. Other people, like myself, can look at one thing and not feel anything and wonder why someone considered that art, look at something else and wonder what happened in a persons life to make them so dark, look at something else and think it is a great drawing or photo but not necessary modern art, look at something else and love or hate the political implications.  I had all these feelings at the Busan Museum of Modern Art. And saw some stuff that did look like modern art to me (as opposed to the stuff that is just a pile of something and someone just tagged the word art onto it)–but I’m not posting those pictures here.

See below for photos of certain ones under headings (similar to above) of how I feel about them. First though, there were some papers that laid out Korean history, starting in the 1950s (in the basement) and starting in 2002 on the 3rd floor. They covered North Korea, politics, changes in population, education, feelings toward foreigners, technology and media and below are some of the ones I thought were the most interesting.

Art?

Darkness

 

The one below was darker than anything else because of the track that was playing over and over again: the Reindeer got hit by a car playing in a few different languages

Good photo or painting, but modern?

Political
