Sungeun Kim

A visual artist/ filmmaker/ visual anthropologist based in Berlin (Germany) and Jeju Island (S.Korea).

My main interest is the process of memory’s ‘becoming’ in the cinematic practice.
How to remember summons the question of media’s function as documentation as well as the problem of (in)visibility.
I record to recompose a memory out of friction and rupture in the moment when impressions in everyday encounter collective-selective memories, unwritten yesterday, potential history, prophecies and eventually forgetfulness.
