Asia Society Texas Center says
"Portrayals of North Korea tend to veer into extremes: either sensationalistic demonization on one side, or ungrounded idealization and staging on the other. Both portrayals erase the actual human beings who live there. Instead of this, I wanted to build a project focusing on the group that forms the core of every society—people. People of different ages, statuses, and occupations that anyone, anywhere could identify with.” — Matjaž Tančič

In this presentation complementing the exhibition 3DPRK: North Korean Portraits by Matjaž Tančič, Asia Society Texas Center welcomes Slovenian contemporary artist Matjaž Tančič. Tančič works in 3D, a technique that requires patience and understanding from the subject, who stands motionless while multiple photographs are captured to cover the requisite perspectives. His stereoscopic images provide rare insights into North Korea, a country inaccessible to most.

Admission to 3DPRK is free. The exhibition runs through February 26, and is open Tuesday-Friday, 11:00 am–6:00 pm, and Saturday-Sunday, 10:00 am–6:00 pm.
