Abstract:

"Stylistically influenced by communist brutalist propaganda and ideologically informed by the foundational work on North Korean art -- Kim Jong Il's 1992 publication Treatise on Art (Misullon) -- these state-commissioned posters promote 'correct' forms of socialist realism that document the socio-political and economic policies communicated from the Leader to the North Korean people. In so doing, daily activities are aligned with political beliefs; for example, the metaphorical configuration of rice farming with the cultivation of socialism. Beyond their overtly ideological character, the posters convey practical messages related to new agricultural methods, or industrial and social developments, while portraying a distinctly human picture of the varied urban and rural communities across the North Korean landscape. Altogether, the imagery offers insights into a country that few have visited and from which first-hand information remains sporadic and inconsistent at best."--Foreword.
