New Cultural Space for the “New Normal” after COVID-19

Our rich daily life has changed rapidly and dramatically by COVID-19 pandemic.

Our past selective lifestyle that valued cultural diversity and preference has changed into a limited and unavoidable lifestyle that requires safety measures such as non-contact, non-face to face, social distance, and voluntary isolation etc.

The transition to a new lifestyle that has never been experienced before is precipitating an economic crisis and demanding another New Normal.

The new lifestyle of New Normal demands a healthier, more beautiful, and eco-friendly, furthermore creative way of life.

KICA International Invitation Exhibition 2020 invites creative works which reinterpret social value and role of the new cultural space needed in the post-Corona Virus

New Normal and expand the reinterpretations. We anticipate diverse works for future directions of new cultural space in New Normal.
