Seoul Biennale: Collective City

Seoul Biennale 2019 will be held from Sept. 7 to Nov. 10, 2019

The contemporary city operates as a speculative apparatus, shaped by the logic of efficiency and profit; public resources and spaces are increasingly being privatized and conceived of as commodities. Emerging models are based on a managerial model that privileges corporate and/or technocratic visions that undermine the collective nature of the city, and challenge both our political and environmental survival. In this process, architecture has become progressively marginalized from the city’s form and processes, increasingly relinquishing its disciplinary scope.
