Title Analysing visual representations in the North Korean Refugee Movement for Social Change and Justice
Author(s) Jones, Pearl
Date 2014
English abstract
Art has the ability to give voice to the vast number of ordinary citizens suffering under totalitarian rule in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, both past and present. This paper uses a mixed-analysis approach to examine three selected examples of visual representations concerning the North Korean Refugee Movement in order to illustrate how Art functions as a strategic component of C4D, and how it can be effectively used by social movements as a way of framing movements’ identities in collective action, promoting awareness and enhancing resource mobilisation through the emotive communication of knowledge. Art has been found to play an important role in the communication and transfer of knowledge by creating powerful emotions and providing a voice to the otherwise voiceless. Visual texts can be used strategically by social movements in the area of C4D to reinforce/create a collective identity and aid in movement participation by enhancing solidarity and self-assurance while creating motivation for collective action.
