I just couldn't resist. You see, I am addicted to reading the Korean News Central Agency of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea press releases. It's so orwellian in the news it presents right down to the rigid, pseudo academic translation in English. I will say no more, and let you enjoy a glimpse into the wonderful world of North Korean news.
Pyongyang, September 30 (KCNA) -- The national industrial fine art show was held with success at the Three-Revolution Exhibition on the occasion of the 60th birthday of the Workers' Party of Korea. On display were more than 1,200 pieces of design works and 650 items of manufactured goods presented by industrial fine art studios of ministries and national institutions, provincial industrial art studios and by industrial establishments across the country. More than 50 pieces of design works were highly appreciated at the show for their reflection of the demand of the times and the artistic quality of virtual utility. Among them were "Mark design for the Mansudae Art Theatre," "Design for street decoration," "Design for Korean costume," "Design for porcelain patterns" and "Design for printed cloth patterns" exhibited by the Mansudae Art Studio, the Industrial Fine Art Studio under the Ministry of Machine-Building Industry, the Light Industry Fine Art Studio under the Ministry of Light Industry and Pyongyang University of Fine Arts. Besides, more than 100 items of manufactured goods such as accordion, brass ware, car, lubrication oil and plastic sashes presented by the Pyongyang Musical Instrument Factory, the Pothonggang Ironware Factory and various other factories were estimated for their style and quality. The show fully demonstrated the validity and vitality of the Juche-oriented idea on industrial fine art and the developing industrial fine art commensurate with the new century.
