Seoul Museum of Art – Eddo Hartmann

For the 70th National Liberation Day, Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) presents an exhibition that passes through our historical and nationalistic tasks of independence, division, and unification, with ‘North Korea’ as its artistic keywords. The exhibition is on show until September 29.

‘North Korea’ Project is comprised of 3 sections: A representation of North Korea’s visual culture at-a-glance including oil paintings, posters, and stamps, North Korea’s scenery and people depicted in the photographs of foreign artists, and video and installation art by South Korean artists depicting the subject of North Korea.

The exhibition also introduces foreign photographers, Nick Danziger from the U.K., Eddo Hartman from Netherlands, and Wang Guofeng from China. Their photographs taken after 2010, which depict architecture of city, landscape, and people, present current scenes of North Korea.

The presentation of Eddo Hartmanns photo series Setting the Stage: Pyongyang, North Korea is supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
