On Thursday, September 29th, the Daegu Photo Biennale opens at the Daegu Arts Center and the Bongsan Cultural Arts Center in Daegu, South Korea. Among the selected artworks on display is Pipo Nguyen-duy’s “Small Baptism,” from his series “(My) East of Eden.”
The theme of the Daegu Photo Biennale 2016 is “We are from somewhere, but where are we going?” [The main exhibition section] “Anonymous Me/You” has its goal in the conversion of awareness and the operation of the human rights regime, with the reconsideration of the value of human life and the human rights of refugees. Toward this goal, we will bring up the refugee issues on the horizon and sympathize with the fact that we all can somehow become refugees ourselves due physical and mental causes such as warfare, unemployment, advanced age and environmental apocalypse. Discussion, reflection, and contemplation will be done together as the issues facing refugees impact all of us.
