About the Work

South Korea, an electronic society, if ever there was one, is the home of the Moonies, a well-funded Christian sect which aggressively broadcasts its beliefs throughout the world. There are large modern churches with huge stained-glass windows for this and other Christian sects thickly scattered throughout the country. I found South Korea the strangest country I had ever visited.

Watching TV in my hotel room in the mega-city of Seoul, not far from the border with communist North Korea, I came across TV channels amongst the religious ones, entirely devoted to the row between south and north which by 1993 had been going on for more than forty years.

This work is an attempt to cover all bases.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
