First Floor: 17:45 - 18:05
Performance: 70, in motion. A dialogue on virtual intimacy
Hyoung-Min Kim, Thomas Schütt

Following input by anthropologist Michael Tomasello we consider social connectivity as part of the biological evolution of mankind. But that does not simply imply cooperation but also competition up to obstruction as well.
In 70, in motion, Hyoung-Min Kim experiments with how the body transforms in the processes of cooperation and obstruction.


Hyoung-Min Kim works with motion sensor light which is operated by its own logic programming. However, she found out there is another logic that seems to operate it, aswell. It is ambiguous but fully present. Its way of function is much more complex, sensitive and cooperative than logic programming. There must be something which is beyond the logic.
Hyoung-Min tries to find the function of motion sensor light through physical experience and asks how the programming and instant conditions could cooperate. She looks for a scenic expression of censorship and cooperation by the interaction of technical sensors and personal sensitivity.


“We experience the perception and its horizon “in action”
rather than by “posing” them or explicitly “knowing” them.”

“Perception does not give me truths like geometry but presence.”

Maurice Merleau-Ponty„The Primacy of Perception“


Hyoung-Min Kim(1980) is from South Korea and Berlin based artist. How can one fully describe the human condition on an artistic level? This is the question that has been driving her artistic work. She put her focus on the life of refugees and human desire for safety, protection, security and home and therefore, examined especially the forms of intimidation towards very basic human needs. She opened a dance-like cluster of expression for the human body. She have shown her work in different places in Europe and South Korea mainly and awarded by Korean critics as a ‘Best Piece of the Year 2014’ with ‘Gelbe Landschaften’ and ‘The story of those who left’. She was funded by the Governing Mayor of Berlin- Senate Chancellery- Cultural Affairs , Fonds Darstellende Künste e.V, Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen, Arco Council Korea,Seoul Art foundation,Hauptstadt Kultur Fond.
