Look at us, by Sun Mu. An exhibition of works by a former North Korean propaganda artist was cancelled this week in China, reportedly under orders from the Chinese government. As AFP reports, Beijings Yuan Dian gallery was planning to show a collection from Sun Mu, a North Korean defector who uses a pseudonym for fear of retribution from Pyongyang. The month-long exhibition was due to open on July 27th, but according to South Koreas Yonhap news agency, Chinese police blocked people from entering the gallery and removed Sun Mus paintings just before the opening.
