Ter­ri­to­ry I, IIIII

16mm Black and White

The exhibition Territories, organised by Anselm Franke, Eyal Weizman, Rafi Segal and Stefano Boeri at the Bezalel Foundation in Tel Aviv (2004), included a week-long series of events and lectures in various locations across both side of the frontier of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The programme comprised a bus tour which attempted to narrate political and strategic issues through the relics of the occupation. Architecture was described as the physical embodiment of the conflict where landscape and its mapping are used to serve ideological purposes. Territory I, II, III was recorded during this bus tour, during this “journey through a physical reality” around the West bank and Palestine. This film was in fact produced during the exhibition and then screened on its last day.
