Busan Biennale 2012 proposed a theme of 'Garden of Learning' and exhibited Sep. 22 to Nov. 24, 2012 at Busan Museum of Art, Busan Cultural Center, Busanjin Station, and Gwangalli Meworld. 'Garden of Learning' stems from a slow, largely improvised exhibition process involving around 80 people from Busan and wider korea, a comparatively small number of artists and the Artistic Director. Collaborating closely in a body called Learning Council, these people shared their doubts about the relevance of the Biennale-type exhibition, explored possibilities for reaching a wider community and learned about various artistic approaches to the realities that keep challenging us.
