Un livre regroupant des documents rarement vus en occident, ou, plutôt, rarement vus ailleurs qu'en Corée du Nord !
Passionnant, même si les documents datent essentiellement des décennies précédentes sans que l'on comprenne si c'est la production récente qui est plus rare ou si c'est l'accès aux sources qui est difficile.

Peu de texte, mais de nombreuses reproductions d'affiches de propagande nord Coréenne classées par thème.
Un livre qui offre une vue unique sur un art particulier et rarement présenté.

Ever forward to Paradise 3 mai 2008
Par Robin Benson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
To quote from Koen De Ceuster in the book's intro: 'Only if the poster appeals to the ideological and aesthetic sentiments of the people will it succeed in truly rousing the people'. The cynical might conclude because the people were not truly roused by these posters is a good enough reason to explain why the economy of the DPRK is in such a ramshackle state and not likely to improve in the coming years.

The 250 reproduced are pretty lackluster in their creativity. This becomes apparent when compared to Soviet Posters (published by Prestel in 2007 and the same size and format) though admittedly they developed over several decades and had the benefit of talent like Lissitzky, Govorkov and Rodchenko to create political masterpieces. With a closed society like North Korea where creativity emanated from the two Kims should anyone expect anything better.

Despite a sameness to many of the images some do stand out. A poster on page 233 is an interesting painting of four horsemen with flags, riding into the future (where else!). As with so many posters shown the groupings are the same: a soldier; woman farmer; steel worker; intellectual. The painting style looks quite contemporary though. On page 251 a diesel engine done in a very graphic style with the side of the unit incorporating bold type, the poster headline is in the same perspective as the engine. There are no dates or artists mentioned in any of the captions and looking through the pages I get the impression that maybe the bulk of the posters were created by a small group of artists and designers.

There is a chapter called Undeterred Defiance, with forty-five works hurling abuse and dire consequences at the US and some of these look several decades old. Covering the Korean war, the capture of the USS Pueblo in 1968 and a US helicopter incident in 1994. These last two events, very minor in the scheme of things but as they are the only two incidents where the US directly affected North Korea their importance is exaggerated enormously.

The book is identical to the Soviet Posters I've mentioned. The same 288 pages, color throughout, in 150 screen and also the same annoyance of having all the captions and page numbers sideways on each page (so four stars) but I thought the Soviet book's contents far more interesting. With two books covering the same subject I wonder if Prestel will extend the idea to Cuban, Polish and East German political posters?

Interesting book... 16 janvier 2011
Par Susan Lipps - Publié sur

I purchased this book for my husband for Christmas. He has a deep interest in propaganda as well as North Korea. This book is full of really neat and sometimes beautiful as well as disturbing pictures. The husband is concerned that something is lost in the translation of the posters as well as it seems the person who wrote the book is a bit of a sympathizer. That doesn't matter much to him because all he cares about is the artwork. Either way... a great book.
A glimpse of Orwell's 1984 1 mars 2010
Par Craig J. Brain - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a beautiful book about how the North Korean government wants it's citizens and the world to perceive their nation. Looking at the images provided and the news on television and it is easy to make comparisons to George Orwell's 1984. References to chocolate rations spring to mind :)
The artwork in many of the posters is of idealised stereotypes and beautiful, and while it might not appeal to a western audience, may have a far greater impact upon the North Korean target audience. A good example of this is the image used on the cover depicting a soldier, a nurse and an officer of some sort, all looking outwards, apparently united in facing an undisclosed threat. Every face shows strength and determination and is designed to appeal to the target audience as an "ideal North Korean" and to highlight the value of those in professions supporting the military efforts of North Korea.
This book is an excellent insight into the propaganda machine of North Korea and I recommend it highly to anyone interested.
This is a good series of books 6 janvier 2011

Prestel publishes a series of books of collections of posters from various 'communist' countries. They are extremely interesting to look through and especially to see how styles/subjects change as time progresses. The only qualm I have is that they did not date the posters in this book. In the Soviet Posters, they were dated, and history sorts of people enjoy that. Based on the amount of secrecy in North Korea, dates may have been unknown/unavailable.
Excellent resource for Korea Watchers 26 février 2014
Par Randall A. Young - Publié sur
Format: Relié
If you study Korea as a whole, the Korean War, or are interested in the political dynamics of a totalitarian regime, this book is a must to add to your library of resources. North Korea is the modern era's propaganda master. Not since the the Nazi Third Reich of the 1930s and 1940s has this level of propaganda brilliance been seen. The posters are works of art in and of themselves, regardless of the anti-American, militant messages being conveyed. But once you take the time to look at and read the posters and their English translations, and put yourself in the mindset of an average North Korean citizen growing up in this propaganda environment, it becomes easy to see why the rest of the world continues to have such difficulties bridging the cultural gap with the "Hermit Kingdom."

The one big drawback to the publication, as mentioned by other reviewers, is that the translated messages of the posters are printed vertically, forcing the reader to rotate the book 90 degrees from the poster viewing angle in order to read what it says. But that's a small price to pay for a fantastic resource.
