Abstract

This paper analyzes the landscape of club culture and identity politics focusing on the clubs in the Hongdae area of Seoul. Landscape can be understood as something that is formed, changed and terminated through sociohistorical process, based on the interaction between the physical space environment and the subjects of daily life who live in that space. Following this concept, this paper uses the tricircle diagram of landscape interpretation consisting of space, subject and society. More concretely, this paper uses the six analytical factors of the cultural politics of landscape, that is, visibility, significance, sociality, historicity, power, and identity. In other words, this paper will be observing the visual presentation of a club space and its symbolic meaning, the history of club culture and the social relationships within it, and finally conflict, power relation and hegemony negotiation that evolve around the value and characteristic of the club culture through languagescape, lifescape and bodyscape. In conclusion, it was confirmed that the club culture in the Hongdae area has the spatial identity of a carnivalesque space of communitas, a local culture space and a space of contested meaning.
