‘I feel Catalan and Spanish by birth and North Korean by adoption’
Alejandro is a project that focuses on the life of the public figure of Alejandro Cao de Benós, a Catalan known to sympathize with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) that supposedly has been working for decades for this communist regime.
Coming from a Catalan aristocratic family to come, Alejandro Cao de Benós hosts feelings of pluriidentidad since he defines himself as half Spanish / Catalan and half Korean. In addition to performing tasks in North Korea, Cao de Benós promotes the Asian country in the Western media and organizes guided tours for tourists through the Korean Friendship Association, which he founded.
“Alejandro” is a project of Marion Balac, resident artist of #WTArtspace+info
