Never-before-seen North Korea – a rare glimpse into the country behind the politics and the creativity behind the propaganda. This incredible collection of prints dating from the 1950s to the twenty-first century is the only one of its kind in or outside North Korea. Depicting the everyday lives of the country’s train conductors, steelworkers, weavers, farmers, scientists or fisherman. These unique lino-cut and woodblock prints are a fascinating way to explore the culture of this still virtually unknown country. Together, they are an unparalleled testament to the talent of North Koreas’ artists and the unique social, cultural and political conditions in which they work.
