Especially, this 5th Biennale is significant in retracing prior exhibitions for the preparation of the next decade. Therefore it aims at asking fundamental and essential questions, such as “What is media art?” “What is the difference between traditional art and media art?” “What change in art has been caused from this?” and “What kind of effects will this bring?” and it will also attempt to find out the answers of these questions through the exhibition of various media artworks.

The theme of this Biennale is Turn and Widen and it consists of three categories; Section of Light, Section of Communication and Section of Time. The 5th Seoul International Media Art Biennale will be showing artworks by 70 teams from 26 countries. International Symposium, media_city seoul Archive and Matrix S will be held as related events of the Biennale.
