Dictee by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha( Book )
12 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 485 libraries worldwide
Dictee is the best-known work of the artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982). A work of autobiography that transcends the self, Dictee is the story of several women: the Korean revolutionary Yu Guan Soon, Joan of Arc, Demeter and Persephone, Cha's mother Hyung Soon Huo (a Korean born in Manchuria to first-generation Korean exiles), and Cha herself. The element that unites these women is suffering and the transcendence of suffering. The book is divided into nine parts structured around the Greek Muses. Cha deploys a variety of texts, documents, images, and forms of address and inquiry to explore issues of dislocation and the fragmentation of memory

Mouth to mouth by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha( visu )
3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
English and Korean words appear on the screen, a mouth forms the shape of an "O," then opens and closes. Is this the beginning of language? In this early videotape, Cha isolates and repeats a simple, physical act - a mouth forming the eight Korean vowel graphemes - so that this ordinary action becomes something primal and riveting

3 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Generali Foundation, Wien und Fondation Tàpies, Barcelona>Das Hauptthema meiner Arbeit ist die Sprache<, sagte Theresa Hak Kyung Cha vonn sich. Ihre Werke gelten in Europa noch als Geheimtipp. Bis 1982, dem Jahr ihrer Ermordung, schuf sie ein umfangreiches Werk, das sich mit Sprache, Erinnerung, Dislozierung und Entfremdung auseinander setzt. Oft kombinierte Cha Aspekte unterschiedlichster Medien und schuf ganz neue Ausdrucksformen. Dabei erkundet sie Sprache und ihre Bedeutung aus einer biografisch-koreanischen Perspektive. Dieser reich illustrierte Band führt den Leser ein in ihre Künstlerbücher, Papier- und Textilarbeiten, Performances, Filme und Videoinstallationen. Erstmals gelingt hier ein Überblick über ein Werk, das als Pionierarbeit immer mehr an Bedeutung gewinnt

Exilée ( visu )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The two super-8 mm films, projected onto the wall at 18 fps, show through time-lapse photography subtle changes in the definition and articulation of the composition. The videotape seen on the monitor involves text and still images dissolving into one another. Cha's distinctive voice-over, with its delicate, deliberate phrases in French and English, evokes a further poetic relationship between the meanings of different languages and images.--John G. Hanhardt, Whitney Museum of American Art, 1995
