Abstract

Myths of national construction and accompanying visual representations are often deeply connected to political narrative. The Korean peninsula may be unlike other political space due to the ruptured relations and sovereignty on its territory since World War II: North and South Korea. Nevertheless, both nations construct inverse ideologies with the common tools of the pen and lens and both produce highly coded, politically-charged national, visual and narrative mythologies rooted in their physical landscape. Following Geographers Denis Cosgrove and Noel Castree in recognising landscape and the natural environment‟s vital contribution to the construction of symbolic national/political space(s) and adopting rhetorical and methodological strategies derived from communication studies‟ approach to visual culture, this paper focuses on the “Saemaul” movement, a political project of the 1970s focused on upgrading rural infrastructure and landscape in South Korea, which was both enacted by and connected to President Park Chung-hee.
