    International Symposium: Exploring North Korean Arts

    September 3-4, 2010


    The symposium is organized around three core themes. The first is an introduction to North Korean art, including its function, its reception, and its connection to other spheres of society. We will next briefly discuss the question of exhibiting North Korean art, before moving to a few examples of North Korean art ranging from traditional brush painting to music, stamps, mosaics and illustrations in children’s books. This is an academic event; we will focus on facts and their scientific analysis. Even so, there are no taboo topics.
