Casco Art Institute
Netherlands · Curating
Binna Choi is the director at Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons in Utrecht (www.casco.art). She engages with both its artistic program and the organizational and (de)instituting practice as her curatorial and collaborative art practice.
Travelling Farm Museum of Forgotten Skills with the Outsiders, and the Site for Unlearning (Art Organization) with Annette Krauss and the Casco team, are some of her recent or ongoing curatorial works.
These works situate next to the process of restructuring and rearticulating the institution itself, together with the Casco team, the ecosystem, and the annual Assembly (since 2018).
Years before, she conceived a long-term trans-disciplinary project called Grand Domestic Revolution (2010-2012) and the multi-faceted program Composing the Commons (2013-2016).
Choi is also a member of Akademie der Künste der Welt /Köln. While there, during the year 2020, she worked in close collaboration with Christian Nyampeta and curated the project Gwangju Lessons over the 18 May Democratic Uprising. Then she took this project to the Asia Culture Center as part of the MaytoDay project by the Gwangju Biennale Foundation. In 2016, she was a curator for the 11th Gwangju Biennale.
She continues contributing as an advisor to the Afield network and is a board member for GALAS (Green Art Lab Alliance Support).
