International Studios: Symposia

International Studio Symposium: Active Archive

Archiving typically entails the storage of ideas and objects, fixing them to a historical timeframe. The ‘Active Archive’ of the Seoul Biennale International Studios attempts to rethink this definition: Professors from 18 global institutions will convene to discuss the imminent future embedded in the design research of their academic studios. The work is opened up as a platform for continuous discourse, not just for issues in Korea, but for other metropolitan regions faced with the challenge of defining a new form of commons.
