25 YEARS of Korea Forum

Making the unheard-of visible

Podium discussion

Since 1991, the Korea Verband has been publishing the Korea Forum, one of the few publications in the German-speaking world that specifically deals with Korea and East Asia. For 25 years, the editorial staff have concerned themselves with critical reporting. For the anniversary edition, special focus has been given to the transformation process: How can state injustice not simply be replaced but instead have these negative experiences built on and transformed into positive power for the future? In cooperation with the 4.9 Peace Foundation, a relative of one of the young men who were suspected on 9. April 1975 of founding a Communist party has been invited to Berlin from South Korea.


The young men were executed without the opportunity to appeal the charges. Contemporary witnesses from Germany, who followed the court process at the time, have been invited to demonstrate the importance of international solidarity.


During the event, artworks will be exhibited in the foyer of the Werkstatt der Kulturen that featured in Korea Forum reports over the last few years.

More information is available from our cooperative partner Korea-Verband e.V.
