Model Village

Kijong-dong, a propaganda village from the 1950s, is situated in one of the world’s most inaccessible spots: the Korean demilitarised zone, a 160 mile stretch of land separating North and South Korea.

From South Korea it can only just be seen, and looks like a film set. The brightly painted concrete flats are empty shells; the flagpole is one of the tallest in the world and the loudspeakers blast nationalist slogans and songs. Model Village envisages a visit to this forbidden zone.
