Comfort Women Wanted

The UCLA Center for Korean Studies presents Chang-Jin Lee' project "Comfort Women Wanted," which is based on his interviews in different countries in Asia with "comfort women" survivors and a former Japanese soldier.

February 25, 2015 2:00pm to 4:00pm

The Comfort Women Wanted project brings to light the memory of 200,000 young women, referred to as "comfort women," who were systematically exploited as sex slaves in Asia during World War II. This project serves to increase awareness of sexual violence against women during wartime.

It is based on interviews in 7 different countries, with Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Filipino, and Dutch "comfort women" survivors and a former Japanese soldier from W.W.II. The artworks include public art billboards, Kiosk street posters, prints, multi-channel video installations and a "Recreation of a Military Comfort Station."
