Under the theme “This Too, Is a Map,” the 12th Seoul Mediacity Biennale (SMB12), will aim to redefine the concepts of migration, diaspora, and languages. Guided by new artistic director Rachel Rakes, SMB12 will look at systems imposed or created outside national borders, including transnational solidarities, underground commitments, the coded mapping of data and infrastructure, as well as those of artistic and political communication. The contemporary art event will welcome over 70 contributors, including 40 exhibiting artists and artist teams as well as over 30 artists, writers, researchers, musicians, DJs, and choreographers who will participate in programs and publications.
DATE: Sept. 21 to Nov. 19, 2023
VENUE: Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA), Seoul Museum of History, Seoullo Media Canvas, and a series of underground spaces across Seoul
