(Self-promotion alert) If you’ve seen my site, you probably know I have this thing I do where I go to abandoned places. Apartments, amusement parks, red-light districts, 747s, you name it. Now I’m putting on a photo exhibition in Incheon of prints of some of the best photos.
Since Incheon is a little out of the way for most people, four bands will play at the opening on Saturday, June 6. Starting the show will be Pornotarium, Korea’s most multicultural band, as well as new Korean punk band Mateo, hardcore band with a death wish Chadburger, and finishing the show by trashing everything will be noise band Master Musik. The show starts at 3pm so come early and get back to wherever you need to go that evening. For the trainride back, you can pick up a manual to urban exploration in Korea.
The whole thing is happening in Space Beam, a former soy factory in Baedari, Dongincheon. Now it’s an art collective that puts the rest of the country to shame. It’s next to the tracks and you can see it to the train, on the right side seconds before you pull into Dongincheon Station. Click here for the exact location.
