Introduction
그들이 남긴 메시지 억압 속에 눌린 셔터
We once again look to the democratization movements that connect the May 18 Democracy Movement of 1980 to the June Struggle of 1987.
Even the guns and bayonets that plunged the city of Gwangju to chaos, nor the tear gas that covered the entire country that summer could hold back the will of the people on the street, Taegeukgi flying high and proud.
The situation on the ground in these moments may have been lost to the abyss of history, if not for those who recorded and immortalized these moments.
Why did they keep the camera close to heart despite the oppression and threat of torture from the military dictatorship? We focus on the “messages they left behind” and strive to experience their memories, however indirectly that may be.
The emotions behind the lens and the perspective on the photographs guide us to the tasks left behind in the struggle for democracy in the 1980s, and the solutions we could reach as those who came after.
The messages captured in these photographs will lead us to reflect on what positionality and stance we should take toward history as the ones who live today.


To ensure that justice is served to those who committed the atrocities on May 18, and to ensure that the sacrifices of those who gave up their lives for democracy not be in vain, we revisit the “Shutters Pressed in Oppression” to awaken a genuine desire for democracy.
