The Office of Human Resources (OHR) is a critical spatial practice operating within the instability of capitalism. It uses spatial work in various forms to postulate and question the politics of space, identity, colonial history, and extractive economy to get closer to a new collective future. OHR is led by Stephanie Kyuyoung Lee, and frequently collaborates with other humans.
