Join Asia Society for a docent-led tour of our current exhibition 3DPRK: North Korean Portraits by Matjaž Tančič.

About the Exhibition
3DPRK: North Korean Portraits by Matjaž Tančič

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (commonly referred to as North Korea) is an area of Asia that is unfamiliar to many. Matjaž Tančič’s (b.1982, Slovenia) portraits are taken using a 3D stereoscopic technique, requiring each subject to stand motionless for minutes while multiple photographs capture the requisite perspectives. His landmark 3DPRK series offers a unique glimpse of the citizens of Pyongyang — North Korea’s capital — as well as workers, farmers, educators, athletes, and entertainers from across North Korea.
