CHE Onejoon (b. 1979, Seoul) is a visual artist and filmmaker, currently living and working in Seoul. One of his first projects involved photographing Seoul’s red-light district, which began to decline after the anti-prostitution law took effect in 2004. He also made short films and archives that capture the trauma of modern Korean history by documenting the ruins of the global Cold War: in the form of bunkers constructed in Seoul during the immediate aftermath of the Korean War, and the U.S. Army camps in South Korea vacated when the soldiers redeployed to the Iraq War. In recent years, Che worked on a documentary project about the monuments and statues made by North Korea for many sub-Saharan African nations. The resultant film is Black Monument (2017). His ongoing project seeks to create a photographic work, film and installation about Afro-Asian culture and identity.

Che has exhibited internationally at Taipei Biennial (2008), Palais de Tokyo Modules (2012), the Venice Architecture Biennale (2014), New Museum Triennial (2015), Louisiana Museum of Modern Art Afrika (2015), Busan Biennale (2018), Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art Survival Kit 10.1 (2019), and others. He was fellow of 2013 Sommerakademie Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern and participated in Rijksakademie in Amsterdam 2017-2018.
