Mansudae Art Studio

Pyongyang's Mansudae Art Studio, pictured, may be the biggest art factory in the world. It employs roughly 4,000 workers, including some 1,000 artists. The massive atelier's main task is to churn out North Korean propaganda, but it also runs a thriving multimillion-dollar side business: building statues, monuments, museums, sports stadiums, and at least one palace for several foreign countries. Clients include Algeria, Angola, Botswana, Benin, Cambodia, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Germany, Malaysia, Mozambique, Madagascar, Namibia, Senegal, Syria, Togo, and Zimbabwe, according to Curtis Melvin, a researcher at the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University. What follows is some of Mansudae's work, both in North Korea and abroad.
