Fall in Art : Daelim Museum

 

This was the museum that first started specialist photography in Korea.

It was actually initially opened at Daejeon in 1997, coming to Seoul a few years later, in 2002. Today, besides photography, the museum also brings a range of other kinds of art and design.

 

They are focused on transmitting the different ideas of art, giving their visitors the chance to get in touch with new types of lifestyle, also by showing different perspectives of what art can be and become.

Along with exhibitions, Daelim plans events and educations programs. They are constantly expanding their views and projects, creating new ideas, some that are yet to come.

Their choices on what to bring in and show make it always a nice visit and worth the experience.
