North Korean banknotes aren’t much use for buying anything, but if you’re German artist Aslan Malik, they make for hilarious and surprisingly compelling art. Malik has gotten hold of a bunch of money from the dark side of the Korean peninsula and defaced the images of Kim Il-Sung thereon, reimagining the Great Leader as a series of comic-book villains. The resultant art, spotted via Laughing Squid, forms a series called The Injustice League of North Korea — a doff of the hat to The Justice League and also to a similar project with US banknotes. One can only imagine what Kim would have made of it.
