kate hers RHEE is a new media visual artist and community blogger whose work seeks to rethink and reshape notions of transnational and cultural identity, often through different modes of communication and public/private interventions. Born in Seoul, raised in Detroit, with residence in Berlin, Germany, RHEE considers herself a transnational Korean-American with German persuasions. Her work reflects the complex nature of miscast identity, cultural dislocation, and gendered interactions.
She has shown in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America, most recently at: Entretempo Kitchen Gallery (Berlin), Coohaus Art (Chelsea- NYC), the Berlinische Galerie – Museum for Modern Art (Berlin), MOMENTUM (Berlin), SOMArts Cultural Center (San Francisco-CA), and TRAFO Kunsthalle, (Szczecin- Poland). She proudly serves on the board of Korientation, the Berlin-based political network for Asian German perspectives and was recently interviewed for the anthology, Unknown Diversity: Insight into the History of the Korean Migration in Germany. She lives and works in Berlin and sometimes you’ll find her in Detroit. www.estherka.com
