Residencies Insights: Talk by Binna Choi (South Korea/Netherlands), Curator-in-Residence
19 Oct 2016 - 19 Oct 2016  7.30 – 9PM
Drawing from her experience as director of Casco (Office of Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht, Netherlands) and her interest in the notion of self-organisation and the self-organising practices at a time of institutional anomalies, Binna Choi will discuss The Grand Domestic Revolution, a “living research” project inspired by US late nineteenth-century “material feminist” movements that experimented with communal solutions to isolated domestic life and work. A collaboration of artists, designers, domestic workers, architects, gardeners, activists, The Grand Domestic Revolution investigated the domestic sphere challenging traditional and contemporary divisions of private and public and developed a special form of international collaboration, embedding itself in the local context of each host venue.


Binna Choi (South Korea/Netherlands) is Director of Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory, Netherlands where she employs art and art institutional practice as a way to build a (micro) society in tandem with social movements. At Casco she has conceived and co-developed numerous long-term projects such as Composing the Commons (2013-2015) and Grand Domestic Revolution (2009/2010-2013). Her most recent curatorial projects include the three-day seminar Cultivate or Revolutionize? Life Between Apartment and Farmland (with Nikita Choi, 2014) at Times Museum, Guangzhou, China; the summer school and exhibition Group Affinity (with Bart van der Heide, 2011) at Kunstverein Münich, Munich, Germany; the 11th Gwangju Biennale, The Eighth Climate (What Does Art Do?), (2016), Gwangju, South Korea. As part of her practice, she also engages with writing, editing, publishing, and contributes to discursive platforms with lectures, discussions, and workshops. Choi has been a faculty member at the Dutch Art Institute/ Masters of Fine Arts Programme in Arnhem, Netherlands.
