In 2002 the ruangrupa artists’ initiative was invited to introduce itself with a presentation at the Gwangju biennial in Korea. In the programme section entitled PAUSE, artists’ initiatives from the entire world were presented as examples where new models for art creation and communication are being established. Ruangrupa’s presentation included the work and publications of seven of its artists and won the Unesco award “for the promotion of the arts”.
Participation in this biennial has expanded ruangrupa's network and contacts with other artists’ initiatives in Asia considerably. At the video festival they recently organised there was a wealth of Asiatic video film to be seen.
