ABSTRACT

This paper examines the structural change of the artistic production field in Korea from the establishment of modern art to the present in connection with the social context. I divide the structural change into three parts and focus on the main issues of each part. First, from the 1950s to 1980s, I look at the process of positioning of the abstract artas a mainstream under the national influence in the formation and development of modern art, and also I pay attention to the process of re-evaluation and positioning of Minjoong-misool. Then, in the 1990s and 2000s, it is understood that the art practice is centered on individual artists, unlike the previous period, which was grouped according to a certain art movement, and the causes were identified as expansion of the system. This study reviews the changing institutions and determines the trajectory of taking position of artists in the restricted production field by reviewing the overlap of themajor exhibition and award systems. Meanwhile, this paper examines the problem as the artists’ survival and small-scale collaborative activities as the structure of the field has become more polarized since the late 2000s. As a result, I try to reach the essential problem of the current artistic field in Korea.
