Curating/ Research/ Critics

Kang, Jeauk, is a curator and artist who mainly works in Seoul and Suwon in South Korea. He is a founder/director of the Suwon International Photo Festival(Suwonphoto) and the art and disaster project. He is very interested in using art outside of the art category and changing society. He wants to turn the old city of Suwon into a culture and art village through Suwonphoto. By doing so, Suwon and Asia want to meet and communicate with each other. As a photographer, he has spent more than 10 years on the scene of climate change and in disaster areas. One day in 2013, he met a girl playing with a Barbie doll without arms and legs in Tacloban,Philippines, which was destroyed by Typhoon Yolanda. This led to the creation of a "Art and Disaster" team, which took a 3D printer and visited Tacloban again to repair children's toys. Recently, he visited the earthquake-damaged area of Nepal and carried out the project. In addition to 3D printing, he wanted to overcome trauma by conducting modern dance and photo workshops together.
