The Korean artists MOON Kyungwon & JEON Joonho make work that addresses elemental questions concerning contemporary civilization in light of political, socio-economic, and ecological changes. The exhibition project News from Nowhere that they initiated jointly in 2012 is premised on a post-apocalyptic scenario: humanity has been almost entirely wiped out and is forced to reconsider long-held convictions that may no longer be tenable.
The project premiered at Documenta (13) and is designed as a steadily evolving ensemble. MOON & JEON have established an interdisciplinary and participatory platform where renowned experts from the fields of product and fashion design, architecture, urban planning, and medical and biotechnology research discuss the urgent issues of our time with the audience.
This monographic publication accompanies the exhibition and delivers an in-depth exploration of MOON & JEON’s project News from Nowhere. The book presents a comprehensive overview of the former exhibition stations in Kassel and Chicago alongside documentation of the project’s realization in Zurich.
