"...if a critique of Orientalism avoids the object of its criticism it is also unsound. Criticising Orientalism is fine, but a more flexible approach within the structure of Orientalism itself should be entailed in the criticism. Criticism of Orientalism should be better than Orientalism itself or contain certain surpassing elements within it. The criticism and the exceeder may conflict with each other. Even the critical reflection of 'what is not Orientalism?' may be derived from the outer, especially Western perspectives. This is imperative: what we can do in between escaping Orientalist structure and demystifying it may even include intentional use of Orientalism..." (From The Phantom of "Minjok Art" by Park Chan-kyong)
