ON THE ART OF MAPPING: JERUSALEM;
In a period when the Mediterranean coastline has become a place of forced migration, urban conflicts, and historical and social polarities,
I felt an urgent need to research the Israeli section of the coastline. Over the last few years, several sites along the coast have been investigated, from the northern border with Lebanon to the southern border with Gaza, including Ashdod and the liminal coastline of Jisr a-Zarqa. Juxtaposing critical mapping with historical analysis identified spatial apparatuses that were imposed on these sites to mediate political and socioeconomic ideologies.
