Abstract

Curated by Pontus Kyander

Artists: 130 international artists

About the festival: MAP, Ewha Media Art Presentation, is since 2001 an open-air sound and moving image festival of high international standard in a central area of Seoul. Occurring each May, at the height of the Korean spring season, EMAP uses the beautiful and varied sceneries of the campus area of Ewha Womans University to stage an event equally directed to the large audience of students as well as a general public of thousands. This year, when Ewha Womans University celebrates its 130 year anniversary, it has been important to create an event of unprecedented scale and quality. The history, scale, and content of EMAP has established it as an international event, carving a seal in the art world next in line to the Gwangju and Pusan Biennials, and to the Seoul Media Art Biennale.

At EMAP some of the finest Korean artists from the field of sound and moving image meet a rich selection of established as well as young international artists. During an intense festival week, the Ewha Womans University Campus is turned into crossroad for artistic exchange where the enthusiasm of audience responses is forged with acclaim from art professionals.

My videos: Rentyhorn (2008) and Louis Who? What you should know about Louis Agassiz (2010) was presented.
