JARA, Isabel. Politicizing the Landscape, Illustrating the Nation: nationalism, Chilean Dictatorship and Publishing Projects. Aisthesis [online]. 2011, n.50, pp. 230-252. ISSN 0718-7181. doi: 10.4067/S0718-71812011000200013.
This paper explores how the Chilean landscape was reinvented by the nationalist ideology and the military regime, particularly through the illustrations published by the Editora Nacional Gabriela Mistral while it was a state publishing house (1973-1976). Within the mixed framework of the history of political thought, cultural history, and iconography, the paper looks at the way in which both ideological demands as well as visual and editorial media converged to transform the territory in a political «heritage». Finally, the paper proposes that landscape was symbolically projected as the basis of patriotism, and as a «normalizing» element of a uniformed population and of an authoritarian order.
