      An American named Arturo Pierre Martinez from Texas entered North Korea illegally by swimming across a river from China. A couple years ago, he attempted to enter North Korea by swimming from South Korea, but got caught. Wow, how determined he is. For someone, North Korea is better place to live than the U.S.

        I visited North Korea during it's 3rd Nuclear Test. Giving a glimpse inside the country - and what the US reports outside the country - at a time that the Hermit Kingdom was once again world news. I attempted to paint a friendly people of this often misunderstood country, with kids playing in the snow, laughter with our tour guide and daily life in a subway, while not being oblivious to the actions of the regime. Til this day, I fail to grasp which elements of what I was allowed to see where genuine and which where staged for tourists. I.e.: notice the group of men suddenly playing badminton next to our tour bus in -10 degrees Celsius...

            What has been done, and what might we do about two of the world's most repressive states: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/burma-and-north-korea-avoid-the-law-unless-convenient Conflicts in both these countries show the real limits of international law when there are powerful neighbours and geo-political interests to worry about. Both conflicts show how easy it is without international legal intervention for such conflicts to stay little known. In this lecture the history of these conflicts, and the atrocities known to have been committed in each, will be summarised and set beside legal actions that have been attempted but that failed. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College Website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/burma-and-north-korea-avoid-the-law-unless-convenient Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

              Human Rights Abuse in North Korea is well documented, but few have paid attention to the religious focus that this sometimes takes.

                  • Book | Property of the state

                    STORY Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother—a singer “stolen” to Pyongyang—and an influential father who runs a work camp for orphans. Superiors in the state soon recognize the boy’s loyalty and keen instincts. Considering himself “a humble citizen of the greatest nation in the world,” Jun Do rises in the ranks. He becomes a professional kidnapper who must navigate the shifting rules, arbitrary violence, and baffling demands of his Korean overlords in order to stay alive. Driven to the absolute limit of what any human being could endure, he boldly takes on the treacherous role of rival to Kim Jong Il in an attempt to save the woman he loves, Sun Moon, a legendary actress “so pure, she didn’t know what starving people looked like.” TITLE The original title of the book is "The Orphan Master's Son" I chose to rename the title of the book to "Eigendom van de staat" - "Property of the state" because Kim Jong Il meets Sun Moon in a boxcar. She would sing Arirang to let her mother know that she was okay. That was the moment when Sun Moon got discovered by Dear Leader. Sun Moon is Kim Jong II's favorite, no one could take her away from him. CONCEPT The book consists of two parts. The first is a part of propaganda story about the good life in North Korea. The other part shows the real life in North Korea. The intention is to shape both parts in such a way that the difference is visible. All the left pages contain the propaganda story. These can be recognized by the many colorful pages. When you turn the book round, the other, contrasting part of North Korea is on the left side. Of course, the propaganda story can be found upside down on the right side. By turning the book you can decided which side of the story you want to read. Pak Jun Do takes on the identity of other people. He is: a kidnapper, a radio operator on the fishing boat and, when the Americans arrive he is the third sailor. At the end Pak Jun Do takes the identity of Commander Ga in order to stay alive. With every change of identity the pages in the book are burned. By partially burning away pages, you can see the next page through the burned places. And so a whole new story is created. The propaganda posters change and get a new identity.

                      DAS MEER IM FERNSEHER is a short film about an retired secret agent, his involvement in North Korean politics and his paranoia as an outcome of his previous missions. During the story it raises the question, is the danger he thinks he is in is real, or also just part of his paranoia. I designed an animated the Title and the Credits for that short. For the Credits I used objects from the movie, stylized them and added effects which are similar to TV noise. A project at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg.
