Artist and Art Professor BG Muhn visited Pyongyang, North Korea on a recent research trip. He will talk about his observations of the people on the streets of Pyongyang during the celebration of their National Foundation Day as well as his encounters with schoolchildren, and he will show video clips from a rare interview of a Buddhist monk at the Sungbulsa Temple, an emotionally meaningful site for South Koreans.

Muhn will also discuss North Korean contemporary art by presenting numerous slides of rare images. North Korean art is the last existing and still vigorously ongoing representation of Socialist Realism in the world.

The talk is cosponsored by the Department of Art and Art History, Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, and Asian Studies Program-School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University.
