Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho – ‘How Can You Define Contemporary Art?’ | TateShots

South Korean artists Moon Kyungwon & Jeon Joonho use science fiction to reflect on society and its future.

In this interview, the artist duo present several of their artworks, including their newly commissioned film ‘Anomaly Strolls’ 2018, partly shot in Liverpool, and ‘News From Nowhere’ 2009, a project that questions the social function of art.

Related to the new commission, ‘El Fin del Mundo (The End of the World)’ 2012, reflects on the human experience and the meaning of art in the present and future.

‘Sci-fi is always the fable of the present’, say the artists. ‘By employing a way to look at the future instead of the present, we wanted to address current issues, especially in relation to what art is and what art could be.’
