Save Event: Icons of Rhetoric

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Icons of Rhetoric offers a unique, introspective look at North Korea, crafted using North Korean news footage, a smartphone, Impossible instant film and North Korean testimonies.


Photographer Chris Barrett and researcher/writer Gianluca Spezza present images and text that offer a different approach to documenting North Korea.

The project investigates the visual representation of North Korea and the contextualisation of media images; exploring the visual lexicon which permeates the often cited 'most isolated country in the world': North Korea.

The exhibition will see the launch of a zine containing images and text from the work in partnership with doomed press/the photocopy club.

Icons of Rhetoric is part of Doomed Gallery's Photomonth programme
