    So... what are your theories? are you going to head to the installation? Or are you going to sit at home warm, and comfortable?

      my theory is that as the exhibition progresses throughout countries the pollution and the degradation of the art continues i saw the connect website its just a theory so i think it would be kinda cool if the album began with hope and slowly got darker and darker showing how the world is getting darker. Still i cant wait for the new album bts always do deep important things that try to give viewers a sense of the world around them

      @AbigailWN Nightcore dreaming I saw a post and apparently BTS live streamed the artists at the gallery. I'm not to sure, but that is what it said.

      Thanks so much for letting us see it since we canโ€™t all travel there. I love this whole project! I love to go to art museums and exhibits but I love that these are all free and drawing in new audiences. Music is a universal language we all experience in our own way and the art is the same.

                They do not lack esteem in their own art. If anything, they keep drawing parallels between the artists works and their art/music and are also hoping the public will do the same and not write off their music as soulless manufactured pop but art with soul, intention and message in their creation.

                  I think you guys missed the point but hopefully you have caught the hidden docent videos by Yoongi and Jin and seen the interviews with the artist and members. This exhibit especially is intended to not be some intellectual exercise for the educated elite but an experience for all human to connect with the aweinspiring beauty, spirit and magic of nature using technology. Reading the work and technology used to capture and create such immersive clear, transporting images, video and sound is incredible. I think trying to connect this to the new album is a distraction from the intention of Connect_ BTS. They really want to connect you to art. The members were truly inspired by nature in New Zealand and in the summer video in Korea and Namjoon and other members are very healed and inspired by art and want their music and lyrics to do the same. I think to that in the last several albums promotions, they want to encourage ARMY to grow and connect with them rather than worship and be obsessed in an unhealthy way with idols. I think this is another attempt to grow and connect to the diverse world and eachother as people not idol/fan.

                    It's not that this isn't connected to the new album but that will be revealed, the fact that they became patrons to share this with the world especially ARMY is significant. They respect these Artists and works and want us to experience them as the artist intends.

                  I feel BTS just want the ARMY and GP to experience the Art and enjoy it. We're grateful that their passion in Arts heals them and they are willing to share it with us.

                      Can someone explain to me what exactly the art gallery is. I know that they want to show us their philosophy through art, but the building is not some new build building so is it just going to be there for a certain time being or is it going to be there forever

                                You two make me miss London. I was just there last month. Even though it was my 3rd time there, I still love it just the same. Thanks for taking us with you to the gallery =) Hope I get to bump into you both next time I'm in England. I followed your directions from previous video and took some pics where BTS has been. Hoping see the one in Seoul when I am there in March. I am so happy BTS is making us get out and explore with each other.

                                  I think the new cd will be healing and growing and remaining us when the rain comes pouring a rainbow will appear bts is more than just a again boy band they are legends they helping global audiences to love who who you are

                                        @Twins Talk K-pop - TTK Omg you answered back. It's just all that is super exciting for me and most Greek Army because BTS is talking about things that are part of our identity. They even made me like Dionysus which is my least favourite from the Greek gods in out mythology. And they do it the right way as well. I mean they actually take the time and actually are interested in our Ancient history. They even pronounce especially RM the Greek names the right way.

                                        it's really new, so I think it's going to be added! but if you can't find it still, try searching "Catharsis"

                                            I think BTS is trying to tell us to save the planet.
                                            They recently teamed up with Formula E electric race cars to sent the message about climate change.
                                            That's why they pick Jakob Kudsk Steensen artwork.
                                            But that is just my thoughts.

                                            Catharsis has a direct link to psychoanalytic theory and Carl Jung (as a disciple of Freud). Relating to BTS & MOTS era, we've already seen MOTS: Persona. The songs all dealt with an aspect of Persona. BWL-Anima (Halsey). We need a song featuring another female. Not sure what the name would be so Anima works for now. Jamais Vu asked for a remedy, maybe MOTS: 7 will provide one. If so, I would think that remedy track would involve ARMY, just not sure what the name would be. Mikrokosmos might be a clue to the 7th track, because if the album is titled 7, then there should only be seven tracks, right? OK, sorry. Back to Mikrokosmos, I think MOTS: 7 will have a linking song to Mikrokosmos revolving around a solo BTS' member finding his individual identity through the love of ARMY. (If I'm right, I hope this is a Jimin solo.) So what does all of that leave us with for MOTS: 7? In Persona 1(I think there has to be a Persona 2 type song) the question is asked by RM "who the hell am I?" In Shadow Suga answers "Yeah, I'm you, you are me..." But by what cathartic process(es)(back to shadow lyrics "...sometimes we will clash...") Did the Persona 2/Shadow (and future songs? Anim(a/us), Ego, Self) go through to get there? Catharsis, as the process of resolution might also be an interlude. I think that MOTS: 7 will explore (through 7 solos) the various concepts above. I don't know if I gave you clues for all 7 titles, but theories exhaust me. 1. Persona 2 song-catharsis? 2. Shadow. 3. Jamais Vu link song-Remedy? 4. Mikrokosmos link song-Animus? 5. BWL link song-Anima? 6. Ego and finally, 7: Home link song-Self.
                                            I hope this makes sense to you.

                                                          I honestly think you're overlooking the 'Dionysus' connection in all of this. At the Golden Disk Awards they mentioned the 'city Dionysia begins' starting with this comeback... and this is what this comeback is.. a huge festival of arts and music. I think they're making the most of the Dionysus connection, if you look at how the media portray bts as these 'youthful effeminate' idols who lead an army of 'frenzied' girls with their music. It's very similar to how Dionysus is portrayed. As far as I'm aware he conquered the lands he crossed alongside and with the help of those who followed him, much like BTS and army. Also, look at their MMA performances, which often give us clues to the comeback.
                                                          I personally think MOTS:7 will have a mix of genre but will primarily address the darker and hidden side of the soul, with them talking about the parts of their past story that were hidden, the parts they're not necessarily proud of, the shadow side.
                                                          Although, we could all be clowns and it could be an upbeat celebration that includes none of the above. I dunno.

                                                          I personally don't think the reason is anything to do with lack of self esteem in their own art. Big Hit talked previously about people enjoying art in all its forms and wanting to provide a multi media type experience for fans so there's something for everyone.
                                                          I agree that none of it is 'necessary' to enjoy BTS' music, they're doing more than enough, but I'm grateful and am enjoying the content they're sharing as are so many others too.

                                                            As they didn't do an 'outro' last time, and Shadow is an 'interlude' I'm guessing it's probably a continuation from MOTS: Persona which I think is why they're making the most of the 'Dionysus' theme.

                                                            Sorry for not explaining properly ๐Ÿ˜…

                                                              love that BTS encourages people to visit art galleries and museums. it's such a healthy and smart habit to do so. it expands their fans' horizons and perspectives, and could lead them to think about the world more inclusively in the future

Even if I donโ€™t agree with the Gormley choice (he doesnโ€™t need any more money!). Bts know how much influence they have, itโ€™s nice to get more personal patronage. Like a charity. For stuff they actually like.
                                                                          For the people who already know/like art, itโ€™s like a recommendation from a friend. And Iโ€™ve already seen a few people go and be I LIKE AN ART! IVE NEVER SEEN/LIKED AN ART. WHO KNEW. Even if they never go to an art thing again, they might, and they might see other stuff that resonates. Or at any rate, maybe meet some other confused kpop person there and make a friend ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

(I haven't been able to see that - one link I went on had no sound, another said it was no longer available :( ) And how long is it on for? I'm only 30 miles out of London, but too short of money for the train fare at the moment :'( Thanks a lot
