. This facility built in the year of 1938 has an “alcove” where hang scrolls and flowers, at the corner of guest room. And the views of the Japanese garden from the veranda makes you enjoy the beauty of the four seasons.

The South side of Kyoto where this art space located is famous for Toji, on the other hand is also the area where Koreans had rapidly influxed by the release of the end of the war of 1945. Especially around the Higashikujo region is called “Burakumin area” (discrimination region) that people seeking employment from rural, people of the Buraku and handicapped people have lived in. The population reduces after high-growth period, and now aging of the population and redevelopment of the area are progressing.

Baexong Arts Kyoto, in such the city that has changed significantly with the flow of history, was launched to aim “to make an art place where people can talk each other, while scooping up carefully discomfort accumulated in their minds without notice”.

The name of Baexong was combined surname Song of the father’s and Baek of mother’s last name. In South Korea, the couple uses separate surnames, and the child will inherit the name of the father. But Baexong is not father or mother either. Yumi-song will try to ask gender and institutional through this facility.

Then, she who says “I’ll do my best for making this space, as reputed my art works” is actively involved in the acceptance of artist-in-residence and workshops. A must-go space was added in Kyoto.
