Mansudae Master Class: African Public Monuments Courtesy of North Korean Artists
Start Date: 3/4/2015Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 3/4/2015

Event Description:
Why is it that today, all across Africa, so many statues and monuments are made by North Koreans? South Korean artist Onejoon Che explores this question in his multi-media project Mansudae Master Class. The project includes photographs and videos of massive African public art projects like the Tiglachin Monument (1984, Ethiopia) and African Renaissance Monument (2010, Senegal) made by North Koreans as well as archival research that reveals the geopolitical forces underpinning their construction. The project as a whole presents a glimpse into the power of utopian imagination and socialist fiction. The event will begin with a video screening, followed by an artist talk moderated by Sohl Lee, an Assistant Professor of Modern and Contemporary East Asian Art in the Department of Art at Stony Brook University.

The lecture is organized by the Center of Korean Studies, SBU Art Department and the Charles B. Wang Center.
