North Korea reinterpreted on instant film

A joint exhibition by photographer Chris Barrett and researcher Gianluca Spezza. Under Kim Jong Un’s leadership, North Korea has made a conscious decision to be more proactive in the media world. In 2013 we also saw the very first [semi] live tweeted image of the North Korean leader, from mainstream Western media, and in recent days Twitter’s Periscope live streaming has reached Pyongyang.

Icons of Rhetoric offers a different approach to documenting North Korea, merging established news media practices with more contemporary ones, drawing particular attention to social media.

“While researching an article about an Instragram account claiming to be the official outlet of North Korean news, I started to think about the visual representation of North Korea. The idea of the project became a reflection on our engagement with modern media techniques, our consumption of images and our knowledge of this ‘most closed off country in the world’ that is the DPRK, all this interwoven with the notion of democratized propaganda.” Chris Barrett, photographer and curator

By reinterpreting images that already exist in the public domain, Icons of Rhetoric plays on an aesthetic of authenticity, exploring the notion of the ‘devolved’ image.
