MOON & JEON is an artist duo formed in 2009 by Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho that pursues fundamental lines of inquiry about power relations and the social function of art. Harnessing multidimensional social relationships and conversing with global ecological and economic realities, MOON & JEON have worked with various advisors and collaborators from the fields of architecture, medical research, fashion, and urban planning on projects that engage with historical trauma, metabolic states of matter, and the transformative role of culture. Often referencing science fiction in literature and cinema, these artists consider evolutions in the genre as allegories of the contemporary moment and accelerated visions of the approaching future.
