Pyongyang Un-like

„Pyongyang Un-like“ - An installation by 3FOUR inspired by the Pyongyang metro.

From 1996 to 1998 the Pyongyang Metro authorities bought discarded Berlin subway cars from Germany which run with unmodified interior in the capital of North Korea. The only thing the authorities added are the portraits of Kim Il-sung (“The Great Leader”) and Kim Jong-il (“The Dear Leader”). Despite the prohibition of taking photos David Guttenfelder managed to take a picture of the inside of a Pyongyang subway car.

The installation is a reproduction of Guttenfelders photo in the Berlin subway of today. Additionally it shows Kim Jong-un, the son of Kim Jong-il who is currently seizing power after his fathers death.

via mail - thanks
