Sue Jeong Ka’s work seeks to meet communal needs. From commemorations of female Asian immigrants from the 19th century, to a trilingual community newspaper and a piece assisting queer and immigrant homeless youth in New York in applying for federally issued IDs, she mobilizes traditional art spaces to provide community services and in so doing to critique the public structures in which we exist. Inspired by recent protests against New York City’s plan to open new borough-based small jails, Ka is currently working on a manuscript that examines the geopolitical relationship between the jail locations and socially marginalized communities in NYC, with support from the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University and Decolonizing Architecture at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
