The fourth book from the Seoul Biennale 2017 explores the sites, exhibition installations, and diverse array of programs that were realized during the Seoul Biennale. Imminent Commons: Live from Seoul is Centered on the Live Projects sections (Production City, Urban Foodshed, Walking the Commons) and the Public Programs, the book highlights Seoul’s complex urban fabric as a theatre on which the Seoul Biennale was played out. It is a book that focuses less on individual installations and more on the biennale as a speci c set of places. It shows how much the character of theses places is an integral part of the Biennale’s cosmopolitan, transnational gaze.
