„Magdalenas Dilemma is part of a series of works which deal with the situation of the christian mission

and because of that  the competition between the mega churches in Korea. The figure and the discourse of

Maria Magdalena plumbs a space what the postcolonial theorist Homi Bhaba would refer to as thrid space

– the space between the own context and the other, the exotic, in which the definitions and borders would dissolve.
