Having toured seven cities since its debut at the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea in 2018, Civilization: The Way We Live Now is hosted by the Jut Art Museum in 2024. This exhibition has been co-produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/New York/Paris/Lausanne, and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea in collaboration with the Jut Art Museum, Taipei. The Jut Art Museum, as the first museum in Taiwan focusing on issues about the “future,” seeks to comprehensively explore human civilization through this exhibition, by bringing together works by artists from around the world; to wit, this exhibition documents and interprets the development of contemporary human civilization via photographic art. “Photography” is tantamount to a mirror that reflects every aspect of human civilization and our life. From dwelling and traveling as well as ways of production and consumption to working, entertainment, thinking, creation, cooperation, and conflict, all of them are the fruits of human collective endeavors that highlight the complexity and contradictions of contemporary civilization.
