When: September 5th, Tuesday 10am

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 17 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.

Dominique Perrault (Director, SubLab), Alejandro Zaera-Polo (Co-director, Seoul Biennale), Young Joon Kim (City Architect of Seoul)
