Kim Jong Il’s People’s Republic of North Korea is a gigantic installation, a simulation, a play. Eva Munz, Christian Kracht and Lukas Nikol traveled to this land to take pictures of a country from which there are no pictures. What they show in The Ministry of Truth is a window view of the gigantic 3D production of Kim Jong Il, who writes the nation’s statistics and authors its film script.

Here is the state as the ultimate environmental art, a living dispute to American propaganda.
