‘This incredible collection of prints from the 1950s to the 21st century is the only one of its kind in or outside of North Korea and includes depictions of the everyday life of train attendants, steelworkers, weavers, farmers, scientists or fishermen inside the country. These unique linocuts and woodcuts from the Koryo Studio Collection are a fascinating way to explore the culture of this virtually unknown land. Together, they are unparalleled testament to the talent of North Korean women artists and the unique social, cultural, and political conditions in which they work’.
On September 16th, North Korea specialist Nicholas Bonner will give a lecture on the exhibition. Admission is free – register via the designaustria web shop.
If you cannot make the event then you can buy a copy of our Phaidon publication ‘Printed in North Korea’ which has a superb collection of the images:
