Sungeun Kim

Visual anthropologist and filmmake based in Berlin and Jeju Island, Sungeun also works as a researcher
and media activist for the anti-militarization movement in Jeju island, South Korea. Emphasizing on the process of memory
becoming in the cinematic practice her film and video works investigate the possibility of utilizing the documenting media
as a performative tool for counter-visuality. In her works the recomposed memory materials through repetition and
reenactment take the form of video essay, performance video and travelogue with the main focus on the emotionality of resistance.
