Juntae TeeJay Hwang is an artist, educator, and activist predominantly working within performance, film, and sculptural installations in addition to paintings and ceramics.

By questioning what productivity truly stands for in the current neoliberal and late capitalist era, TeeJay aims to challenge the individual narrative of progressive ideals in current western democracies. This narrative seduces us to work towards an illusionary freedom that demands homogenous transparency along with endless and laborious self-improvement; resulting in burnt out anxieties, which turn us all into workaholic zombies that resemble each other.
