On the 17th and 18th of November 2010, the ‘Dialogues about New Urban Cultures’ were held, a programme organised by Casa Asia and the Ministry of Culture together with AECID, the Embassy of Spain in Korea, the Korea Foundation and the cultural centre Sangsang Madang, in collaboration with the Córdoba City Council. This event is included within the framework of the 60th Anniversary of the diplomatic bilateral relations between Spain and Korea.

The event was held at the Sangsang Madang of Seoul cultural centre and brought together an outstanding cast of artists, creators and actors of the Korean and Spanish cultural industry within fields such as Cinema, Fashion, Videogames, etc. On the first day and in the Dialogue of Films, Paco Plaza and Kim Ji-Woon discussed the world screening of Korean fantasy cinema and analysed convergence and differences between both industries, whereas the director of the Sitges Film Festival, Ángel Sala, reminded of the quality of Korean cinema and the “warm reception” of the horror genre in Spain. After this last dialogue, the Spanish photographer Miguel Trillo, presented his work ‘Gigasiápolis’, a series of portraits of urban tribes he has caught in several countries of Asia and other countries of the world.

Later, and during the Fashion Dialogue, the representatives of the Spanish and Korean fashion associations, Lucía Cordeiro as the executive director of the Agencia de Creadores y Moda de España (ACME) and Rupert Lee, Director of the Korea Fashion Association (KFA) made a review about the situation in both countries, to then comment the power of fashion of these countries on an international scale with the creators Lee Doii and Juan Duyos.

After the dialogues, the Tapas Workshop was held and given by the chef Celia Jiménez, (currently in charge of Bodegas Campos in Córdoba and awarded with a Michelin Star), who explained some secrets of her daily work, the importance of gastronomy as the engine of innovation, as well as the importance of Spanish gastronomy as the strength of the brand-country and promoter of the tourism industry.

On the 18th of December, the Dialogue of Videogames brought together several great names of the industry. The Spanish programmer settled in Seoul, Ángel Cuñado, talked to Jee Yongchan, well known creator of games such as Aion or Kingdom under fire, and with Gonzo Suárez, creator of Commandos. The afternoon continued with Lorea Iglesias' presentation, coordinator of the Movil Film Festival, which displayed certain pieces of this new genre.

When the presentation of MFF ended, the programme continued with the Dialogue of Videoart, where the curator Macu Morán, the video artist Kim Gue-Joong and the President of Asia Art Award Forum and one of the maximum Korean experts in video art, Suh Jinsuk, approached the situation of the genre, reinforcing the bet for the purchase of an intangible art; as well as the last tendencies of this field.

To end, the Dialogues about New Urban Cultures concluded with a lecture by John Carlin about Football as a bridge of cultures, which involved a great success of the critic among Korean attendants, who know everything about what surrounds Spanish football.
