Binna Choi is a curator, and the director of the Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons in Utrecht, The Netherlands, which she together with her team re-established in 2018 under its current name and modus operandi after 10 years trajectory within the institution. During this time, she conceived the long-term, art-driven transdisciplinary project “Grand Domestic Revolution” (2009–2013) and the artistic research programme “Composing the Commons” (2013–2016). The latter also evolved with a collaborative project between artist Annette Krauss and the Casco Team Site for Unlearning (Art Organization) and the Arts Collaboratory, a translocal ecosystem that practices art in expanded sense of inventing new ways of living and working together. Currently she’s working on a project focusing on the Gwangju Democratic Uprising aka 518 and, together with You Mi, the exhibition on Eurasia both as a relevant geopolitical and geopoetical space for imaginging the commons, both to unfold in 2020. Choi has been a faculty member at the Dutch Art Institute, a member of Akademie der Kunst der Welt and Community Economies Research Network.
