Seoul International Media Art Festival
media_city seoul

Seoul - South Korea


This media art biennial is part of extensive efforts to establish the city of Seoul as an international high-tech and media metropolis. Especially important in this is the Seoul Digital Media City, in which "media_city seoul" is meant to have a permanent headquarters.

The professed goal of the organizers is to bring together media art, information technology and new digital culture. Close cooperation with the industry is a given.

Besides common exhibition forms, contact to the audience is sought in public spaces throughout the city, whereby media-specific aspects of life in a modern megalopolis are themselves starting points as well focus of the art.

A variety of topics, as well as youth, educational and entertainment programs, are meant to increase the broad effect of the events, and draw an even greater audience to media art.
