ggf. zzgl. Versand

Kim Jong Il Looking at Things is one of the most followed, shared and imitated monothematic Tumblr in recent years. Uninterrupted series of photographs of North Korea´s Dear Leader looking at things, this series fascinates with its formal rigor and intensity. Without removing these photographs their primary function - to raise Kim Jong-Il to an iconic rank - this series forces a shift in the purpose of propaganda. The icon changes to taxonomy, the viewer is being watched, and the meaning of this images beaks away. Accompanied by an essay by Marco Bohr entitled Looking at Kim Jong-Il Looking at Things, the book reveals the springs of our fascination for these accumulated images on the Internet - these memes - analyzing how a series of photographs apparently innocent becomes viral and attractive. By publishing Kim Jong Il Looking at Things in the collection FOLLOW ME, Collecting Images Today, Jean Boîte Éditions continues to highlight another art scene, which establishes the online collector as a creator, and the ephemeral in the perennial.

Re-Inventing Africa´s Development
€ 24.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This open access book analyses the development problems of sub-Sahara Africa (SSA) from the eyes of a Korean diplomat with knowledge of the economic growth Korea has experienced in recent decades. The author argues that Africa´s development challenges are not due to a lack of resources but a lack of management, presenting an alternative to the traditional view that Africa´s problems are caused by a lack of leadership. In exploring an approach based on mind-set and nation-building, rather than unity - which tends to promote individual or party interests rather than the broader country or national interests - the author suggests new solutions for SSA´s economic growth, inspired by Korea´s successful economic growth model much of which is focused on industrialisation. This book will be of interest to researchers, policymakers, NGOs and governmental bodies in economics, development and politics studying Africa´s economic development, and Korea´s economic growth model.

The Orphan Master´s Son: A Novel of North Korea...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Pulitzer Prize, Fiction, 2013 An epic novel and a thrilling literary discovery, The Orphan Master’s Son follows a young man’s journey through the icy waters, dark tunnels, and eerie spy chambers of the world’s most mysterious dictatorship, North Korea. Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother - a singer ´´stolen” to Pyongyang - and an influential father who runs Long Tomorrows, a work camp for orphans. There the boy is given his first taste of power, picking which orphans eat first and which will be lent out for manual labor. Recognized for his loyalty and keen instincts, Jun Do comes to the attention of superiors in the state, rises in the ranks, and starts on a road from which there will be no return. Considering himself ´´a humble citizen of the greatest nation in the world,” Jun Do 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.” Part breathless thriller, part story of innocence lost, part story of romantic love, The Orphan Master’s Son is also a riveting portrait of a world heretofore hidden from view: a North Korea rife with hunger, corruption, and casual cruelty but also camaraderie, stolen moments of beauty, and love. A towering literary achievement, The Orphan Master’s Son ushers Adam Johnson into the small group of today’s greatest writers. From the Hardcover edition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Kang, Josiah D. Lee, James Kyson Lee, Adam Johnson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/002856/bk_rand_002856_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Power Mask
€ 44.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

To this very day masks capture the imagination: where does one´s identity stop and a transformation start to take place when someone puts on a mask, how do we deal with old symbolic and mythical meanings, when do we create new ways of defining ourselves, what is accepted and where does controversy start? Again and again, POWERMASK calls into question the border between tradition and renewal, between uncovering and covering up, thereby connecting past and present across different cultures. Ever since his first collections from the 1980s, Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck has been intrigued by masks. In this exhibition and its accompanying catalogue POWERMASK, his personal fascination for masks and their impact on a person´s identify translates into a particular and varied view of the phenomenon of masks. He also examines the role of the mask in the work of visual artists, photographers, and fashion designers. With contributions by Kaat Debo, Chris Dercon, Alexandra van Dongen, Clémence Mathieu, Valentine Plisnier, Jan Willem Sieburgh, Fanny Wonu Veys, and Sonja Wijs.With works by Diane Arbus, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hans Bollongier, Louise Bourgeois, Olaf Breuning, Thom Browne, Pieter Bruegel de Oude, Dietmar Busse, Richard Butler, Claude Cahun, Giorgio de Chirico, Christophe Coppens, Gustave Courbet, James Ensor, Charles Fréger, Coco Fronsac, Phyllis Galembo, Jean Paul Gaultier, Craig Green, Erik Halley, Keith Haring, Hannah Höch, Axel Hoedt, Stephen Jones, Folkert de Jong, Lajos Kassák, Brian Kenny, Christoph Klauke, Manon Kündig, Inez van Lamsweerde, James Merry, Robert Mapplethorpe, Martin Margiela, Paul McCarthy, Emil Nolde, Niels Peeraer, Pablo Picasso, Bertjan Pot, Richard Quinn, Augustin Rebetez, Tony Saulnier, Hans Schärer, Cindy Sherman, Saul Steinberg, John Stezaker, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Maiko Takeda, Walter Van Beirendonck, Dirk Van Saene, Viktor & Rolf, Sally Wassink
