Eddo Hartmann opent tentoonstelling in Noord-Korea / Foto's van Pyongyang waren eerder in Huis Marseille te zien

Eerder in 2015 was in Huis Marseille de tentoonstelling Eddo Hartmann / Setting the Stage: Pyongyang, North Korea te zien. Hartmann toonde hierin beelden die hij maakte van de architectuur in de hoofdstad van het ongrijpbare Noord-Korea. Deze tentoonstelling krijgt nu een vervolg in het land zelf: hiermee is Hartmann die eerste Westerse fotograaf die openbaar exposeert in Noord-Korea.

Uit het persbericht van Koryo Studio, de kunstspecialisten in samenwerking met wie Hartmanns werk tot stand kwam:

Koryo Studio Photographic Exhibition
Chollima House of Culture, Pyongyang, North Korea
September 24th – Oct 4th 2015

First Art Photography Exhibition in North Korea
Beijing-­based North Korean art specialists Koryo Studio have received permission to showcase photographic works by two foreign professional photographers in a public exhibition in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. 35 large scale photographic works will be exhibited including images from the recent Koryo Studio produced series 3DPRK (Matjaž Tančič) and Setting the Stage: Pyongyang (Eddo Hartmann), both photographed in North Korea last year. Selected photographs from the archives of both photographers will also be shown, marking the first time art photographs from the West will be seen publicly in North Korea. The Koryo Studio exhibition is a unique opportunity to share photographs taken in North Korea by western photographers with the people of North Korea. The exhibition will be shown in central Pyongyang in a publicly accessible space clearly marked and advertised by hand painted posters outside the venue. The exhibition will be free to enter for any Pyongyang residents.
