Words at an Exhibition: an exhibition in ten chapters and five poems
Published by Busan Biennale & Mediabus
The 2020 Busan Biennale came together in an unprecedented situation, with artists facing unforeseen limits and challenges due to the global pandemic. Its overarching theme was to interpret works of art and transfer them into another artistic expression.
Eleven writers of fiction from Korea, Denmark, Colombia, and the United States were commissioned to write short pieces inspired by the city of Busan. More than 70 visual artists and musicians then transformed these into artworks and soundscapes. Rather than illustrating the text or poem, the artists used the words as starting points for their own expression. This large catalogue presents an extensive overview of their creative efforts.
