A Photo Exhibition: Everyday Life in North Korea 

2nd - 10th December 2015
Foyer, G/F, Chi Wah Learning Commons, 
Centennial Campus, HKU

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is one of the most mysterious and unique countries in the world. Our ignorance of what goes on there not only stems from its self-imposed isolation, but also results from the partial and, at times, conflicting accounts of what is happening within the country coming from often unreliable sources. For most people, it is difficult to get a realistic picture of what life is like in the DPRK. This knowledge exchange exhibition is a collaborative effort put together by students and staff members drawn from different faculties of the University who have either traveled to the DPRK, or who have concentrated on the DPRK as part of their studies and research. By bringing together their individual snapshots and reflections, this exhibition hopes to showcase aspects of everyday life in the DPRK. In doing so, the project encourages the public to understand that in so many ways, the North Koreans are quite similar to us. Hopefully this realization will in turn stimulate more conversations about the way we are engaging with North Korea today.
