Okin is a group of artists concerned with issues of spatial regeneration, intervention and collaboration named after the deconstruction process of the famous Okin-Dong site’s redevelopment. As a continuation of their ongoing negotiation with space, transformation, presence and intervention the group presented and negotiated a manifesto with the public of the Nam June Paik Art Center. The group produced a limited edition print that they provided to the public for free. During the workshop the group worked to construct improvised loudspeakers from the print, while holding an open discussion with the public that addressed the conceptual background for their practice as Okin, their investigations into urban and institutional interventions including the group’s collaboration with Tammy Kim’s 5 Interloc(k)utors, and reflections on the history and critique of manifestos. Through this discussion the public was invited to inscribe their own ideas onto the Okin Manifesto and then use the loudspeaker to voice their thoughts. Once the loudspeakers were constructed the group and the public marched through the exhibition spaces and out to the Art Center terrace where Okin staged a performance of the 5 Minute Revolution Manifesto. These two actions operated as a disruption of the Conjunctures within Breach logic that spread throughout the other spaces of the Nam June Paik Art Center and fed the voices of the public back into the institution. In this sense this makeshift loudspeaker works as a physical actualization of being in-between boundaries by simultaneously existing as both a record of an event, an interrogation device, an embodiment of a manifesto, the announcement of a revolution and a conceptual declaration of intent. As a continuation of the Okin intervention please feel free to take a print of the manifesto at Nam June Paik Center, write your own thoughts on it, and make it into a loudspeaker that you can take away with you.
