Exhibition Theme

The 2006 Theme Exhibition, the first event of the Daegu Photo Biennale, featured “Looking at Asia with documentary photos.” Asia is evolving as an art hub that is changing art and drawing increasing attention from the world. The combination of Asia – newly emerging as a main actor in world history – and photography – reactivated as a main artwork in the art circle – can be said to be the main characteristics of this biennale event.

This biennale will integrate the lives and cultures of Asian people in a photo documentary format, maximizing the interests of ordinary people and ultimately transforming the city of Daegu into the Mecca of the Asian image as well as a communication arena.

Based on the traditional photographic history of Daegu that plays a leading role in the history of Korean photography, the city declares itself as “The City of Digital Imagery”” leading the knowledge-based information era while producing and distributing state-of-the-art cultural content via photos and videos, progressive visual media to become a future-oriented city.
