Published on the occasion of the 8th Gwangju Biennale titled '10,000 Lives' held from 3 September to 7 November 2010, this exhibition catalogue includes images and checklist of the exhibited work, essays as well as short articles on each artist's work.
'10,000 Lives, the 8th Gwangju Biennale presents a sprawling investigation of the relationships that bind people to images and images to people. With works by 134 artists - realized between 1901 and 2010, as well as several new commissions - the exhibition brings together artworks and cultural artifacts to examine our obsession with images. [...] Along with the work of contemporary artists, the exhibition includes historical works, found photographs, and cultural artifacts that exemplify the multifaceted existence of images, placing them within a wider cultural context and, at times, blurring the line between documents, relics, and art works. It is a biennial conceived as a temporary museum - opening outwards to embrace history, the exhibition cultivates the exercise of memory, wandering through more than one hundred years of history.'
