Revital Cohen (b. 1981, Jerusalem, Israel) and Tuur Van Balen (b. 1981, Leuven, Belgium) are London-based conceptual artists working with materials and systems of industrial production. They work with objects, installation, and film to explore processes of production as cultural, ethical, and political practices.

They have recently exhibited at Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary in Vienna, Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, the Ernst Schering Foundation and Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, among other institutions.
They have given public talks at the ICA and Tate Britain in London, TENT Rotterdam, Tsinghua University in Beijing, Skiff Goma in the DRC, Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico City, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
Their work is part of the permanent collections of the MoMA, New York, and M+ Museum in Hong Kong.
