    Amorepacific Foundation Holds First International Conference under the Theme of ‘Asian Beauty’

    2018-10-17
    • A total of 23 speakers from 6 countries attending for 2 days from October 26 to 27
    • Conference under the theme of ‘In Search of Asian Beauty: Reclaiming Asian Aesthetics in the 21st Century’

    Amorepacific Foundation (Chairman Lim Heetaek) is holding its first international conference under the theme of ‘In Search of Asian Beauty: Reclaiming Asian Aesthetics in the 21st Century’ at the Amore Hall on the 2nd floor of Amorepacific headquarters located in Yongsan for two days from October 26 (Fri) to 27 (Sat).

    The international conference has been arranged to provide a venue for communication and exchange to expand the philosophical, methodological and social meaning of ‘beauty’ by moving beyond discussions of beauty centered around the West, interpreting the modern significance of ‘Asian Beauty’ created in the lives in the East Asian region and sharing research on beauty of the East and the West.

    The conference has 5 sessions, during which a total of 23 speakers from six countries, including Korea, Germany, the U.S., Singapore, Japan and China, will present. There will be presentations and discussions on each of the themes of the sessions – Session 1 Concepts and Perspectives, Session 2 Beautiful Personhood: Representation and Performance and Session 3 Beautiful Places on the 26th and Session 4 Lifestyle and Living and Session 5 Popular Culture, Technology and Images on the 27th.

    Registration and further information on the conference can be found on the website of Amorepacific Foundation(//ascf.amorepacific.co.kr) with on-site registration also allowed.

    Director Baik Youngseo of Amorepacific Foundation said, “Amorepacific Foundation has explored and studied beauty as a historical and social component coexisting in the Asian region by shifting perspectives and thinking that were centered around the West,” and added “I hope by holding the first international conference we can expand the scope of research into beauty of the East and the West.”

    Amorepacific Foundation’s ‘Asian Beauty’ project was planned to discover the concept and characteristics of Asian beauty and encourage research into Asians’ aesthetic experience and perspective. Since 2012, the foundation has held research project contests on ‘Asian beauty’ for doctorate degree researchers every year. Selected researchers receive research grants and their results are disclosed to the public via the ‘Asian Beauty’ publication series. In addition, the foundation holds ‘Asian Beauty Lectures’, an interactive series of lectures with the public. Amorepacific Foundation plans to share and spread the unique significance and value of ‘Asian Beauty’ through ‘Asian beauty’ research.
