|FACULTY OF THE ARTS | HISTORY OF ART|
The argument that space is a social production is at the center of discussions in research areas such as cultural geography and architectural planning that seek to understand its different modes of construction and their implications. The definition of space as an abstract entity that contains diverse social relations will serve as the premise for this seminar. As part of our discussions, we will seek to formulate and define the ways in which Israeli artists photographed and visualized the local space. Therefore, we would like to move beyond traditional discussions on art and landscape, questions of representation or symbolism, and to argue that photography of the Israeli space must be understood as a full collaborator and participator in its production.
