News From Nowhere: Zürich Laboratory
The Korean artists MOON Kyungwon & JEON Joonho create works that address elemental questions concerning contemporary civilization in light of political, socioeconomic, and ecological changes. The exhibition project News From Nowhere, which they jointly initiated in 2012, is premised on a post-apocalyptic scenario: humanity has been wiped out almost entirely and is forced to reconsider long-held convictions that may no longer be tenable. The project is designed as a steadily evolving ensemble; earlier iterations were presented in Kassel (documenta 13) and Chicago. For their exhibition News From Nowhere: Zürich Laboratory, MOON & JEON collaborated with Urban-Think Tank in developing the idea of a mobile agora that also underlies the exhibition architecture.
