Bloomberg Brilliant Ideas: Kimsooja
About the Film
Born in 1957 in Daegu, South Korea, Kimsooja started attracting the attention of the international art community when she began constructing Korean bottaris in her art – a gesture and motif that continues to appear in her work till today. Her art centers on the work and labor of women –beginning with her early sewn works, to her films and video performances, and now to her sparse, experiential installations that we see today. Kimsooja’s work has been shown in numerous venues and museums around the world, and she’s participated in over thirty major international biennials and triennials, including the 48th, 49th, 51st, 52nd and 55th Venice Biennale.
For three years, beginning in 2015, Hyundai Motor partnered with Bloomberg to develop “Brilliant Ideas,” a series of videos profiling the most exciting artists working today, which aired on Bloomberg TV and online. In 2018, we extended our partnership to produce “ART + TECHNOLOGY,” a video series exploring science and technology, and how breakthroughs impact contemporary art and everyday life, including robotics, the blockchain, and AI. Our partnership with Bloomberg creates opportunities for audiences worldwide to connect across boundaries by engaging with art and new ideas. Both series remain available to stream online, with new episodes of “ART + TECHNOLOGY” presented through Spring 2024.
