Mooni Perry 무니페리

lives and works in Berlin, Seoul 


Over the past few years, Mooni Perry explored the discourses of Veganism/Human-Animal Studies, (Asian) Feminism and the intersectionality of them and how to address things not with solid voice or language rather, through presenting fragmented elements/montages. 

In 2021, she launched an Asian feminist platform-‘AFSAR(Asian Feminist Studio for Art and Research)-with curator Hanwen Zhang funded by Stiftungkunstfonds, Germany and Arts Council Korea. By calling the other artists, theorists, activists through this platform she expects to formulate a massive but loosely connected archive of valuable practices and researches all around the world.
