Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Starke Bilder und sehr aufschlussreich. Obwohl Nordkorea der wahrscheinlich ödeste Ort der Welt ist, birgt dieses Buch in Zusammenhang mit Bild und Text etwas sehr mystisches und geheimnisvolles.
Möchte hier jedoch nicht Nordkorea glorifizieren.

The cult-of-personality-land seems to be getting an invigorating showing these days. This is the fourth book of photos to be released in the last two years and though they might have North Korea in the title it is mostly photos of Pyongyang that always predominate. The Ministry of Truth follows this pattern with just under a hundred photos and some posters.

It is unfortunate that what is on show is of such poor quality. So many are soft focus, grey, badly composed and lacking in any creativity to really show anything of this odd country. The authors also, annoyingly, take an easy out by not writing any captions but supply the dotty thoughts of the Dear Leader to go with some photos on many spreads. The uninspiring layout doesn't help either.

Far better I think to go for Philippe Chancel's excellent `North Korea' (ISBN 0500543291) with 129 photos that show the extent of the totalitarian regime in dazzling color

HASH(0x983262f4) von 5 Sternen The Things Unseen 13. Dezember 2007
Von Timothy Archibald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The photographs in "The Ministry of Truth" came back to haunt me long after I put the book down. Humans appear in the photographs, but we never connect. The public places seem empty of people and activity, but filled with the ghosts of...what, I just don't know. There is a quiet elegance to this collection of photographs, we are seeing things we don't really feel we have the permission to see, and then it's puncuated by a jolt of humanity, a smile, a human face caught off guard. We are looking at propaganda...its grand and its humble all at the same time.

The cool distance of the photographs gives us a feeling of and anthropological study: here are the places, here are the things, here is what it looks like in this mysterious land. This distance allows us to decide for ourselves, look at things objectively, and come to peace with it all.

After all that, this is a great book. Accessible to everyone interested in history, photography, and the things unseen.

HASH(0x98326d8c) von 5 Sternen Truly it is Kim Jong-Il's Korea 4. Januar 2009
Von Michael A. Duvernois - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The authors argue that North Korea is a postmodern state in which simulation trumps actuality. The beautiful and imposing subway stations seem to only play host to photo opportunity train arrivals, for example. Their set of photos, with no captions and just text from his Kim-ness, illuminate both the artificiality and the great imposed distance between ourselves and the subjects (victims?) in the pictures. This is a strange photo essay, certainly not a straightforward one, but one which makes demands of the viewer. What is real and what is simulated? A nation of P.K. Dick tales.

HASH(0x96c11288) von 5 Sternen A Mind-opening Glimpse into North Korea... and Ourselves 6. November 2007
Von sinophile - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While attending the 9th International Pyongyang Film Festival in 2004, writer Christian Kracht and photographers Eva Munz and Lukas Nikol were granted extraordinary leeway to see a different side of North Korea. The Ministry of Truth reproduces their journey to an unseen side of the North Korean peninsula, something beyond the standard CNN-issued footage of military parades and nuclear facilities. Kracht's preface wrily points out the paranoia and anxiety that forms the basis of the Western media's impressions of the country as he elegantly weaves together an essay on the seemingly disparate absurdism of Neo-con thought and Kimgjongilism. If you are looking for an "out-of-the-box" postmodernist take on the 21st century Hermit Kingdom, then buy this book!

HASH(0x96c11654) von 5 Sternen Not nearly enough truth 20. Januar 2008
Von Robin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The cult-of-personality-land seems to be getting an invigorating showing these days. This is the fourth book of photos to be released in the last two years and though they might have North Korea in the title it is mostly photos of Pyongyang that always predominate. The Ministry of Truth follows this pattern with just under a hundred photos and some posters.

It is unfortunate that what is on show is of such poor quality. So many are soft focus, grey, badly composed and lacking in any creativity to really show anything of this odd country. I wonder if many of the shots were snapped while the minders were looking elsewhere? The authors also, annoyingly, take an easy out by not writing any captions but supply the dotty thoughts of the Dear Leader to go with some photos on many spreads. The uninspiring layout doesn't help either.
