Archive of Daegu Art Factory
Effective and Systematic Collection and Management of Information on the Arts and Culture of Daegu
An archive building project to systematically collect and manage data on local arts and culture is under way. The Archive of Daegu Art Factory collects information on various art genres that were created in or related to the region and turns them into a database. A total of 9,634 materials including 9,223 images, 326 videos, and 85 sound sources have been collected and registered; these materials are open to the general public at Daegu Art Factory website.
Since 2013 the Daegu Art Museum has been preparing an archive on the local artists. The museum is currently focusing on deceased or senior artists from the region. After gathering these data, it will be released to the general public on the Daegu Art Museum website. Daegu Culture, a monthly magazine published by Daegu Arts Center, has been providing information on all genres of arts since its first issue in December 1985. All content from the first to the latest issue has been digitized for anyone to access. By typing a keyword into a search engine such as an artist’s name, people can find related items, which is especially helpful for those conducting research on the local arts history of Daegu.
