Exhibition Theme

The 4th Daegu Photo Biennale presents a broad spectrum of contemporary photography in the 21st Century, and is entitled, "Photographic!" This year's exhibition aims to rethink the role and authenticity of photography per se and to highlight the pluralism of photography in various cultures as a visual language that affects other forms of art.

If the invention of photography in the 19th Century was about the surmounting of technological barriers then photography in the 21st Century calls for overcoming the limitations of the concept that defines photography.

In short, it is about dismantling the barrier between the notion of “photography as art” or “art as viewed through photography.” Photography refers to the attention to something Photographic which is free from any theoretical definition. The exhibition title hints at the shift in focus to the experimental spirit of artists who are boldly challenging the limitations of conventional media and exploring new frontiers.
