In
Setting the Stage: North Korea photographer Eddo Hartmann shows the
North Korean regime's ambitions to build the ultimate socialist city
and to mould the people living in that city to their ideals. Hartmann
is one of very few Western photographers who has been allowed almost
full access to the country. This publication is the result of many years
of research and four visits to Pyongyang.


/>After the total destruction of Pyongyang during the Korean
War (1950-53), the government took its chance to rebuild the capital
from scratch and to turn it into the perfect setting for their
propaganda. Pyongyang was to become the city in which every North Korean
could experience true modern socialism. The buildings were to be the
utopian background against which the inhabitants could live their daily
lives. Pyongyang was to immortalize the socialist revolution. Eddo
Hartmann had the exceptional opportunity to photograph this architecture
of artificiality. In a series of evocative images, he captures the
forced and almost surreal character of North Korean ambition. In a very
personal and original style, Hartmann focuses on the individual.
