Due to globalization, more countries are enjoying the benefits of being more closely connected and mutually developed. At the same time, tensions between nations, races, and religions are rising and deepening. Korea has achieved rapid economic and social development in the short term since the end of the war, becoming a growth model formany developing countries, but questions about its identity have been steadily raised due to the side effects of compressed growth and rapid modernization. Artists are also asking questions about this through their works, and they are melting their experiences and philosophies into the world of works.

The 57th Venice Biennale Art Exhibition Korean Pavilion introduces the impact of this world situation on Korea and the perspective of Korea on global discourse related to the issue.
