This satirical red book compiles some of the images accumulated by João Rocha between 2010 and 2011 on a Tumblr. The artist simply selected images of the Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il among the photographs provided by the official PR agency of North Korea.
These images from insignificant and trivial events or visits - where considered on by one - are frankly unsignificant; although some of them are really surprising, funny or even grotesque.
However, the series constituted by these images denounces in a rather crual manner the propaganda around the character of the Dear Leader, close to its people, interested in technology and farming. A leader that - despite his small frame - is always represented in a very favorable manner, with his entourage always in the background and towered by him taking the space in the foreground.
With a text in English and French by Marco Bohr.
