Grace Euna Kim is a Berlin-based Korean-American performance and visual artist, choreographer, pedagogue, and researcher who devises immersive encounters through a lens of psychoanalytic and critical theory. She has created large and small-scale performances in diverse site-specific contexts - from city-wide interventions to cultural and educational institutions, to the intimacy of a private home. In her performance and social practice she uses deconstructive methods as a means to question, decode, and reinvent the theatre of the audience themselves, and thereby work through embedded social and political issues.
In 2019 she conceived the ongoing 'Acid Bodies' participatory research entity, which probes unconscious mediations of ideology, desire, symbolic violence, and the body as a site of resistance in crisis. This began in Berlin at ZK/U-Center for Art and Urbanistics and since 2020 has been developed into experimental Masters courses at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule-MA Spatial Strategies program where she is currently a lecturer.
During her performances cameras are generally prohibited, with few exceptions. The experience is documented (when and however possible) through hidden cameras, texts (written afterward by participants), and sound. If you are interested in the private archives, please email the address below.
