In 1907, a year after Kansong was born, a National Debt Redemption Movement (NDRM) was launched in Daegu. Previously, loans were provided by the colonial power, as a means to subjugate Korea under Japan's economic control; however, this movement sought to achieve financial autonomy and recover national sovereignty by calling on all citizens to partake in the effort to repay the national debt. What began in Daegu quickly spread to the rest of the nation, exemplifying a national campaign aimed at preserving national authority with monumental historical significance. Even today, Daegu prides in its reputation as a 'patriotic city' that fought to repay the national debt and to redeem national authority.
The spiritual morale of moonhwa-boguk and the Redemption Movement (NDRM) initiated in Daegu offered small flames of hope that began to grow and shine a bright light during the somber days of Japanese oppression. The cultural spirit that underlies these efforts grant equal importance to both events, as they served to fuel our thrust into the autonomous cultural and economic powerhouse that is Korea today.
The Kansong Art Museum, slated to be built in Daegu, provides a symbolic space where the spiritual morale of moonhwa-boguk and NDRM converge. The structure mingles traditional Korean aesthetics with global cutting-edge design. By hosting exhibitions, research, education and cultural projects, this space will help to communicate the beauty and preeminence of our ethnic culture and contribute to elevating our national pride. It is our hope that the Museum will serve as a stalwart symbol of Daegu and a national landmark of Korea.
