Description

This Place is a monumental art project that explores Israel and the West Bank, as place and metaphor, through the eyes of twelve internationally celebrated photographers. Their photographs question the history, the divisions, and paradoxes of the region and its inhabitants. Marked by the photographers’ differing visual vocabularies, nationalities, and cultural backgrounds, the picture that emerges is not a single, monolithic vision, but rather a diverse and fragmented portrait. The images have previously been shown in renowned museums such as DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Museum. Now, the project culminates in this retrospective volume, which contains more than 100 spectacular photographs and views of the exhibition, as well as essays by distinguished curators on the project’s histo-ry and its meaning for today’s political and cultural discourse.
