The North Korean Political Pop Art Campaign
SQUIRT WATER NOT BULLETS
MAKE ART NOT MISSILES 

We spoke no words to each other as we stood together in front of her painting. With only the niceties of smiles, she handed me a badge that read, MAKE ART NOT MISSLES. She nodded towards my camera indicating that it would be ok if I took a picture of her and I blurted out, "Um-hum...ok, I got it...fun, yeah, I'm gonna take your picture!"
