Messages to Humanity
Our world is in crisis because we are losing ‘Love and Forgiveness’ over our desires. Greed leads us not to trust and care for our neighbors and livings in the world. This exhibition is a collection of the messages — Love and Forgiveness — to realize our coexistence in this fragile world. Each nation and culture have positive quotations about ‘Love and Forgiveness’ designed to better understand themselves as responsible citizens in society. These unique posters represent those cultural quotations around the world. Each designer expresses the message through the typography of their writing system.
Most importantly, all participants share their kindness with a good heart. All visitors will realize our existence in the world from the exhibition of the designers’ personal experiences. Furthermore, we hope that both designers and visitors will practice ‘Love and Forgiveness’ to make this world a safe and harmonious place for us and our next generation.

6th GVC 2021
Global Visual Culture Symposium
“The Visuals distinguish a Culture from the Cultures.” (Albert Young Choi, c. 2009)
We are connected as human beings in many different ways, but the essential connection among people is communication-based visuals. Over our human history, we have created visuals to share the similarity and to differentiate the dissimilarity. Those historical artifacts become cultural icons for the particular culture, nation, and race. We as humans have created visuals to decorate these artifacts; the artifacts are the visuals. Even in today’s complicated network of people, fundamental communication never will change the visuals that we understand. The Global Visual Culture Symposium (GVC Symposium) gathers educators, practitioners, researchers, thinkers, and students in the visual communication design disciplines. We share our thoughts and find our communication for our generation and beyond.
