Daegu Photo Biennale

Role-playing - Rewriting Mythologies

Curated by Ami Barak & Kang Hyoyeun

Daegu, South Korea

September 7 to October 16, 2018

With Omar Victor Diop

"Under the theme Role-playing - Rewriting Mythologies, the Daegu Photo Biennale 2018 will examine the role and status of the contemporary photographer in its most varied aspects. The event will present works that are as many scenarios of the real and will focus on the sublimated nature of certain realities that have become, by their proliferations and the focal points they raise, new mythologies. This edition of the Daegu Photo Biennale will select known and recognized artists from all continents, while promoting an opening to the Korean and Asian scene, with special attention devoted to emerging scenes."
