Seoul Mediacity Biennale 2020 – One Escape at a Time is developed around the notion of escapism, particularly in relation to the current popular media landscape. As an introduction to some of the directions and conversations that will develop in preparation for One Escape at a Time, a three-day screening program will take place at Seoul Cinema (6-8 December 2019). Presenting a selection of artist videos and shorts alongside longer dramas, the program conjures up a landscape of realities conveyed through diverse voices and gazes. Each session will also be accompanied by a post-screening talk.
Participating artists and directors:
Monira Al Qadiri, Richard Bell, Johanna Billing, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, Minerva Cuevas, DIS, Hsu Che-Yu, Kang Sangwoo, Spike Jonze, Ming Wong, Chikako Yamashiro, and Tobias Zielony
