25 OCTOBER: MADE IN NORTH KOREA @ POP-UP BEIJING《朝鲜制造》@POP-UP BEIJING
“Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit ourselves to either.”
MADE IN NORTH KOREA – BOOK LAUNCH & TALK
On Wednesday 25 October, POP-UP BEIJING is proud to launch the new Phaidon book ‘MADE IN NORTH KOREA,’ with Koryo Group and author Nick Bonner.
Highlighting the development of the incredibly unique graphic design of everyday life in North Korea (The DPRK), this book is a treasure to behold, read and explore. More than just a mere “coffee table book,” it delves into the reality of graphic design and art in the most reclusive nation in the world.
Join us for a free book talk, Q&A and art exhibition opening – and the opportunity to purchase your own copy of this stunningly beautiful book. Very limited copies of the book will be available on the night of the launch – so books will be available on a ‘first-in-first-served’ basis. For those who purchase a book, Nick Bonner himself will be on-hand to personally sign it for you.
EXHIBITION OF ORIGINAL ARTWORKS FROM THE DPRK
On the same night, POP-UP BEIJING will launch an exclusive exhibition of original graphic design works, personally collected and curated by Nick Bonner, over the last 20 years of his travels to-and-from The DPRK. Some originals – and prints of originals – will be available for purchase, so don’t miss this internationally unique opportunity to own your own piece of history.
