Keumhwa Kim, born in Korea in 1978, came to Berlin in 2003, where she has since worked as an independent curator. She recently completed a course in museum studies at the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft. She is presently pursuing an M.A. in Art History and Art Technology at the Technische Universität Berlin. In 2008 she curated the exhibition Face to Face at the Korean Embassy. The following year, Keumhwa co-curated an exhibition at the NGBK in Berlin which examined the history of Korean emigration to Germany against the backdrop of the Cold War (Shared.Divided.United). Her show Me–We, to be mounted in Seoul in 2012, will present works of Korean and Berlin artists who grapple with the tension between individualization and modern power structures, "the dual constraints of modern society."
