Dear list members,

for those of you who might be interested and around, I would like to  
draw your attention to our small exhibition at the  


NORTH KOREA IN PHOTOGRAPHS (Nov. 21st 2018 - May 20th 2019)

An exhibition of the department Korean Studies at the University of  
Hamburg with photos by the geographer Eckart Dege and the photo artist  
Koo Bohnchang

The exhibition 조선민주주의인민공화국 NORTH KOREA IN PHOTOGRAPHS gives an  
impression of a country frequently shrouded in conjecture. The  
photographs show places from the Demilitarized Zone in the centre of  
the Korean
peninsula up as far as the border region with China in the north.

Some of these places are currently in the international news. Others  
illustrate how the cultural heritage of pan-Korean history, mythology  
and historical sites interacts with today’s Chuch’e ideology.The Kim  
family recurs repeatedly in them in the most diverse contexts.

Prof. Dr. Eckart Dege (b. 1942) went on a total of nine group tours  
and excursions to North Korea with students of the Geographical  
Institute at Kiel University between 1988 and 2008. During these stays  
he built up a collection of photos which is extremely valuable as  
documentation and includes motifs outside the normal tourist itinerary.

The South Korean photo artist Koo Bohnchang (g. 1953) studied, among  
other subjects, Graphic Design and Photography at the HAW Hamburg and  
is Professor for Photography and Video at Kyungil University.
His work, in which he often confronts the Korean past, can be seen in  
museum collections and at exhibitions internationally.

Best wishes,

Yvonne Schulz Zinda
