Instrumentalizing Cartographic Voids and Visions in Neo-Confucian Chosŏn and Renaissance France (15th-16th centuries)  
The aim of this presentation is to examine Chosŏn and Renaissance maps through the prisms of landscape painting and perspective. To establish the validity of a cartographic comparison between Neo-Confucian Chosŏn and Renaissance France, this presentation will first explore the epistemological and technical substrates that differentiate but also interconnect the 1485 Ryūkoku Kangnido (混一疆理歷代國都之圖) –in which the lost 1400 P’altodo (八道圖) is admittedly subsumed– and Oronce Fine’s Recens et integra orbis descriptio (1536) and Nova totius Galliae descriptio (1538). In the light of sensitive political contexts, it will then be argued that cartographers were compelled to divulge, dissimulate, distort or simply omit different sets of data. Ultimately, this contribution contends that the Kangnido cartographer and Oronce Fine resorted to their respective painting techniques and concepts to structure their work in binary categories of disclosed and concealed elements –science and ignorance, spiritual and administrative imperatives, past and present policies, status quo and revisionist concepts. In doing so, they turned landscape painting and perspective into a new art –the instrumentalization of cartography in the name of Neo-Confucian Chosŏn and Renaissance France.
