  • The Palestinian Authority, UNESCO, and the Illusion of Triumph | arenaofspeculation.org
    are the luckiest of the lot particularly in comparison with tourism operations in the more rural parts of the West Bank outside of the PA controlled enclaves Area C which is more than sixty percent of the West Bank is under full Israeli control meaning that Palestinians have extremely limited access and no decision making over zoning in those areas They cannot build or even renovate without an almost impossible to obtain permit from the Israelis whether it is for a person to dig a well on her own personal property or to renovate a historic site which could be used for tourism development Because of the PA s limited control in Area C some sites such as the historic ruins in Sebastiya have sought international sponsorship in renovations to at least make their projects a bit more visible lest they be quietly swallowed by Israeli expansion One fantastic tourism venture underway in the Bethlehem municipal area is in the village of Battir which straddles the green line in the Jerusalem hills Battir and its neighboring village of al Walaja are home to a vast spread of two thousand year old Roman agricultural terraces which include an intricate system of stone lined channels that bring water from the village springs to cultivated plateaus The beautiful landscape which is not only the heritage but also the livelihood of these villages is scheduled to be cut off from the villagers by the impending construction of the apartheid wall The landscape would then be included into a Green Park fashioned by the Jewish National Fund which has already begun to boast of how the landscape tells the story of agriculture and settlement in the Land of Israel Both villages have been mobilizing tirelessly to halt the construction of the wall In fact Battir has already prepared a file on these landscapes in accordance with UNESCO standards and won a UNESCO award for their conservation activities and promotion of preserving the ancient agricultural practices Battir Suzy Harris Brandts Battir Suzy Harris Brandts Battir most of which is Area C would have been an obvious choice for a site in imminent danger and had the PA chosen to submit its file as many believed that they would it would have presented a case much more compelling The imminent danger in Battir and in other Area C projects which could have been prioritized stems from the direct threat of the wall s construction and its annexation of land Prioritizing such sites would be a direct challenge to Israel s expansionist policies Such a move would have forced attention to the occupation s ongoing destruction and its appropriation of Palestinian heritage and livelihood into Israel s green spaces and municipal boundaries It would have challenged Israel s redrawing of borders a process that attenuates Palestinian land on a minute by minute basis in Area C Under these conditions one would have hoped and expected that sites in Area C would garner priority in the UNESCO recognition process

  • From Palestine to Israel: A Photographic Record, 1947-50 | arenaofspeculation.org
    40 remained standing IDF and Defense Archive June 10 1949 In her talk Azoulay spoke of her own positionality as a Jewish Israeli seeking to engage critically with her own state s founding narrative in undertaking the extensive research on which the exhibition was based In working almost exclusively with Israeli state archives she was faced with the challenge of telling a story visible only in the subtext of the dominant Zionist narrative A master narrative common not only to the state and its archivists but also broadly common to the photographers of the time whether civilian or military Certainly the violence and human tragedy of 1947 48 was visible in these images only as traces perhaps most graphically in the residual destruction of the Palestinian built environment However Azoulay also spoke of another kind of violence rendered visible through the photographs as a collection Using the term constituent violence she described a clarity of intent that can be seen in actions between 1947 and 1950 to create and maintain a demographic balance or more specifically a body politic conducive to realising the Zionist vision of Jewish and democratic state in Palestine Introductory text presented from each chapter of the book photograph arenaofspeculaition org Azoulay chose to display blank frames rather than omit reference to key images photograph arenaofspeculation org Notably the time period of the photographs in the exhibition extends beyond the Nakba catastrophe of 1947 48 and into the first years of Israeli statehood A particular point that Azoulay chose to dwell on was the necessity to see this period as pivotal not only in Palestinian history but also in the creation of the Jewish Israeli identity Alongside the expulsion of over 700 000 Palestinians she spoke of 1947 50 as cementing the self narrative of Jewish Israelis as the master of the land and rendering the remaining Palestinians subordinate to this new dominant identity termed Arab Israelis Such a reading insists that the Nakba is constituent to each of these identities and that in Azoulay s words recognising the catastrophe is part of stopping the catastrophe She argued that it is at this point where Israelis genuinely recognise the catastrophe and its very real ongoing manifestations in the present that there is the possibility to challenge the master subordinate relationship and to move towards a shared and open conversation about the future Capturing the destruction of the village of Bir im photograph arenaofspeculation org The exhibition runs from November 4 25 at the Mosaic Rooms and is accompanied by a series of talks investigating the relationship between archival photography film and the writing or re writing of history with speakers including Michel Khleifi Eyal Sivan and Ghada Karmi Photographs from the exhibition are published here with kind permission from the Al Qattan Foundation Connect Email Updates sending Name E mail Latest Posts Fighting new Nakba in the Negev Building Resilience in Hebron On Strategies of Spatial Appropriation and Resistance in Palestine Parallel Walks in Al Khalil Considering
