Busan Biennale 2012
Garden of Learning
22 September - 24 November
Artistic Director: Roger M. Buergel(Germany)

Garden of Learning
A key element of Busan Biennale 2012 is to stage collaborations between artists and audiences. To become successful by creating lasting emotional relationships among the participants, these collaborations need to start well in advance of the official opening of the exhibition. Like the production of artworks they have to be an integral element of the preparation of the show.

Today more than ever, people need to have access not just to objects but to the poetical logic that drives the creative process. For various reasons, be it education or just enjoyment, people want to be part of the intellectual dreamwork but also of the little (and not so little) crises that accompany the realization of every true piece of art.

Of course, not each artist is willing or gifted to let people participate in artistic production, and some elements of artistic decision-making will always be autonomous and intimate, even unconscious. This is, after all, part of art
