Daejeon Art and Science Biennale 2022: Future of Cities
August 2 – October 30, 2022
South Korea

Daejeon Art and Science Biennale 2022: Future of Cities considers a range of ways in which every human/non-human being on the planet can live “together” without anyone being marginaliszed, and imagines the future of cities by reflecting on today. ‘Terrapolis’ suggested by Donna Haraway, is a model for future cities, after the Anthropocene and Capitalocene, focussing on the potentialities of an open space where every living creature is given an equal right to act in shaping the world.

‘Unsigned’ by @operator_______ & @anika | A collection of 100 artist signatures. “…the addition of a woman’s signature can devalue artwork to the extent that female artists are more likely to leave their work unsigned.” (Helen Gorrill) The collection reverses the current negative value of the signatures through their transformation into artworks themselves. Unsigned is a conceptual artwork raising the symbolic and literal value of women and non-binary artists’ signatures.

Pau Waelder interviews Kelly Richardson
Published: April, 2022

Beauty invites viewers to engage with otherwise very difficult subject. Tragedy in the work is located in the truth of what we’ve wrought, the conditions within which we now find ourselves, and the urgent call for us to collectively face it in order to address it.
