A Postcard from Afar: North Korea from a Distance is an attempt to envisage a state and culture that is shrouded in secrecy, being both the producer and victim of oppositional propaganda mechanisms. Through the very lack of images of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea our imagination of the country is created, as an abstract idea rather than a concrete vision. This exhibition brings together new and recent works by a selection of international artists attempting to develop a picture of what the North Korea might be, in the absence of reliable, unbiased information of a nation that operates in exile from the international community.
