This is an unprecedented pandemic situation. 37.5 became a daunting number. It is also a number that means public block. The Covid 19 virus made it so imprinted. However, in this case, the virus should be viewed as in ‘antagonistic cooperation’ with humans. It is 37.5 degrees below, that is, it is a medical standard, but it provides a starting point for forward thinking about ‘A controversial standard’ to which we have entrusted the way of life and the line of civilization. is in a sense. In this context, the 8th Daegu Photo Biennale took as the theme ‘Missing Agenda (Even Below 37.5)’. Because I believe that the attempt to invite them back to the table of discussion and respectfully restore the lost voice is closely tied to the path to going beyond this situation and preparing for the post-pandemic era.
