Yun Hyejeong is a South Korean visual artist and documentary filmmaker based in Germany since 2015. Using her own personal narratives, she questions societal dynamics within hegemonic power structures. Yun analyses social structures, creates new allegorical connections and deconstructs colonial myths through moving images, installations, and performances.

Her body, voice, language, and poetry create a comprehensive localisation in her practice regarding political cartography. Yun’s works reflect contemporary public debates on culture, race, and power relations and are characterised by intersectional identities, post-colonialism, and collective memories migration history.
