On the occasion of the presentation of Mirae kate-hers RHEE’s Collecting Crave/Collecting Crave as part of the exhibitions of the Museum of Asian Art and the Ethnological Museum at the Humboldt Forum, there will be an artist talk with Mayowa Tomori. Tomori is co-founder of AMPL Labs, a creative studio that develops playful installations and inclusive audience experiences. Together with RHEE, he will explain the artwork’s development process and guide the audience through the new version of the game.

Using new technologies such as 3D scanning and augmented reality, museum visitors are invited to assemble artefacts and objects from various museums and the artist’s private collection into their own digital collections or cabinets of curiosities. Participants can photograph their collections and post them on social media under #collectingcrave and #sammelsucht.

The talk will be held in English.

Mirae kate-hers RHEE

South Korean born social practice artist (이미래/李未來) Mirae kate-hers RHEE’s transracial life experiences led her to work between the United States, South Korea and Germany, where learning foreign languages, code-switching, and cultural traditions and customs continuously inform her artwork. Through the lens of transnational feminism, she creates complex research based Gesamtkunstwerk(s) that tell autoethnographical narratives. RHEE received her MFA in Studio Art at the University of California-Irvine, where she was a Graduate Studies Diversity and Jacob K. Javits fellow. She established her studio in Berlin in 2009 and is the current Artist-in-Residence at the Museum für Asiatische Kunst and Ethnologisches Museum, Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin where she is preparing for a solo project for 2024.

Their work takes a feminist, intersectional view of media and culture, and remixes them in multimodal ways that pair bold, marginalized narratives with emerging technology in order to create art that is conversational, interactive and audience focused. Tomori currently lives, works, and creates art in Oakland, California.
