Busan Biennale from September 08 to November 11 2018
Various locations Busan
Divided We Stand. Is the title for the Busan Biennale 2018.
The upcoming Biennale will host its exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Busan, located on the island of Eulsukdo, which was designed and built as the main venue for the Biennale and is scheduled to open this June. The former Bank of Korea, Busan, is the second venue; the building was completed in 1963 and is known for its austerely modernist design. The city of Busan has designated it a cultural heritage site in 2013.
The two venues will reflect two main aspects of the Biennale’s theme: while at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Cold War era and its uncanny return in the present is the main focus, at the Bank of Korea, alternate futurist scenarios will unfold, looking at our current state of being through the lense of science fiction.
