Product Description

A companion Jesse Chun's eponymous Karaoke video essay, this book centers on a 2,000-year old folk song, which South Korea and North Korea both registered as their own for the UNESCO Intangible Heritage list in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Featuring text documents from the validation process, translations and mistranslations of the lyrics, views of fragmented landscapes, Intangible Heritage disrupts the bureaucratic narrative underlying its subject matter.
