[DDP] "A Collection for Korea(Daehan Collection)"
The 100th Anniversary of the March First Movement Special Kansong Exhibition"A Collection for Korea(Daehan Collection)" 1919 was the year when the March First Movement took place. Posung Middle School, Korea`s first private secondary educational institution established by Koreans, was in the center of this non-violent resistant movement against the Japanese colonial rule, which our nationals announced to the world that Korea is an independent country with the humanitarian principle. Many members of Posung school were included within the thirty-three representatives of the movement, and the school printing house Posungsa have printed all 35,000 copies of 'The Declaration of the Independence' which were delivered all over Korea, along with a large number of the student participating in this movement. Due to direct and indirect oppression from Japanese colonial government, Posung was in danger of closing down in the late 1930s'. Kansong Chun Hyungpil, who was known as the guardian of our cultural heritages, extended his effort to Posung school to educate the young generation to preserve national sprit.'Daehan Collection' not only includes the Korea's cultural treasures, and historical assets but also comprehends taking over the Posung Middle School to protect Korea's younger generations against Japanese colonial government's attemps to distort and destory Korea's cultural and historical pride. Kansong art museum designed this exhibition by the time and space axis. We hope the audiences can feel the heart of Kansong, sho have noy just collected the historical assets but also desired to restore the sprit of Daehan-Korea after the liberation from Japanese colonial rule.
