Flower Power Concept:
Videocity’s special exhibition “Flower Power” at Art Busan CONNECT is supported by the Embassy of Switzerland in the Republic of Korea to celebrate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and the Republic of Korea in 2023.
At the prestigious international art fair Art Busan, Videocity presents “Flower Power” to share cultural exchange between Korea and Switzerland with visitors and to encourage a continuous connection with diverse art forms.
Six works, mostly by women artists, speak of “Utopia” in their experiences – a strong yet sophisticated message translated into intriguing visual languages. The videos examine the social norms and shifts of notions caused by technology, while reflecting on the implications for the understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Utopia could be realised by sharing each other’s points of view.
