Korea’s ‘Print Matters’ discovers Utopia within the pages of magazines, where aspirational narratives and exotic places combine with bleeding-edge fashion to evoke a progressive paradise. Through an exploration of Korean designers’ relationships with magazines – often their first contact with fashion – the exhibition delves into the potential of print to inspire, captivate and promote cultural exchange. The energy of these designers’ – high in conceptual designs – proves that, in this Utopia, print is certainly not dead.
