“Gwangju is a symbolic place because from May 18- 27, 1980 Gwangju democratic movement began the democratization of South Korea. Many people in Gwangju and students died for freedom under the dictatorial regime. Considering this historical and political background the main concept of Gwangju Media Art Festival 2019, ‘Healing City or White Magic City’, hopes that this festival can heal our historical pain. Under the theme of ‘White Magic City’, artworks of more than 20 media artists will be exhibited to cure traumatic memories. In fact, white magic is a magic which gives positive influence to people contrary to black magic. So, like white magic the festival hopes to influence Korea positively.”
