MASTER PLAN FOR DUAMDONG was a cooperative art project developed for the Gwangju Biennal 2016. Through workshops and presentations on topics such as gentrification and self-organisation as well as through interaction with the local neighbourhoods in projects such as a table game and a rooftop garden, the artists encouraged a communal exchange about a sustainable future for Duamdong. >> >> >>

“The idea of Master Plan for Duamdong was to demonstrate an alternative to the conventional urban development plan, which usually imposes the future of a place under the premise of the production of economic benefits rather than social relations. Master Plan for Duamdong tried to develop ideas for sustainability and resilience that originate in context. One could imagine a very particular kind of development in the Duamdong neighbourhood that is related to the knowledge already situated in the area’s inhabitants.“ (Myung-Rae Cho) >>
