IM Heung-soon is an artist and filmmaker based in Seoul. Starting with his early works on his working-class family, he has expanded his art world by exploring the lives of people who are marginalized in social, political, capitalist, and national contexts. His political yet emotional works are embodied through different visual mediums such as photography, installations, public art, community art, and films. He was awarded the Silver Lion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015), a first for a Korean. Since then, his works have been exhibited and showcased at the Tate Modern, London (2015), MoMA PS2, New York (2015), the Pompidou Centre, Paris (2016), the Film Society of Lincoln Center, New York (2016), HKW, Berlin (2017), the Busan International Film Festival (2014, 2017, 2019), and the Carnegie International, Pittsburgh (2018).
