Goods and Services is an artist duo of Jaewook Koh and Soohyun Koo. The duo is interested in art institutions and labor that takes place in those institutions. The duo predicts that AI and robots will change art museums and work in museums as they are already transforming our everyday lives.
In this project, Koh and Koo create a hypothetical exhibition hall of the future where AI and robots have replaced human labor. Koo, in charge of “goods,” gathers objects to be displayed in this hypothetical space of the foreseeable future. Koh handles the “services” part of the project, adding stories to each of Koo’s objects and presenting a documentary-like video work that tracks how objects displayed in museums were used in the past.
