Youngsook Choi

Youngsook Choi is a researcher/artist, holding a PhD in human geography. With extensive experience in research-based public arts and design programmes on urban issues and for social minorities, Choi’s primary interest lies in the value system of human labour, more specifically in challenging the dichotomous border and brutal hierarchy between having ideas and actual making, between creative design and skilled manufacturing, and between knowledge work and physical labour. Choi explores this through producing themed artworks, writing articles and co-running a bi-monthly public workshop, ‘RARA School – Thoughts in action’.
