The place where will be located, Daebang-dong 340-3 and 3 other lots, is where U.S. army base ‘Camp Grey’ was located for 55 years until 2007 when they returned it. Seoul Women Plaza next to this site was ‘Seoul Women Shelter’ which accommodates prostitutes, runaway dementia elderly, and vagrants from 1962 to 1998. This is a place where division, poverty and difficult life of woman is intactly accumulated and the pain of our modern and contemporary history transmit to us as is. We want to re-create a dark, “death” space where you don’t even want to get nearby and wish to disappears into a “saving (Salim)” space where saves women and families, .
New Women and Family Complex Facility will be a “Saving (Salim)” space where saves relationship with families and households of women. This is a place where experiment and expand unresolved age-old issues, such as, collapse of social relation network, lack of communication among family members, women’s low participation on economic activities, which stagnated for 20 years, and stagnant of gender inference, in new and interesting ways.
These future issues can only be slowly resolved by moving people’s heart and building up intimate relationship. Additionally, these will not be resolved with single political solution and it requires cooperation of various fields and innovative idea. This is the reason for requiring social renovation platform which people themselves become subjects of problem solving process and various private groups of people become facilitator of the process of solving citizen’s problem. Deviating from unilateral/passive operation system led by government for vulnerable minor social group and bilateral/active participation structure that various citizens participate should be established.
As following statement “We create space and space dominate us,” physical composition of space which draws citizen’s participation and accumulates relation network is a very important element of Space Salkim along with programs and operation system. You will meet a space where you cannot avoid each other, forms creative culture and custom of community, and expands value of gender equality in family and community in here, Seoul.
