Exhibition: The Dome of the Rock

Exhibition: The Dome of the Rock

Since the early days of photography, the Dome of the Rock served as an object of documentation for both local and international photographers. As time went by the site became one of the best-known photographic subjects in the entire world, and in the Israeli-Palestinian visual sphere in particular. The works in this exhibition respond to the image-inflation of this sanctified perimeter, and to the different roles these images play in the regional consciousness. They relate to the multiple aspects of the image of the dome as a geographical marker, an architectural structure, a sacred site, an aesthetic representation, or a symbol of political control; stretching—sometimes to the point of irony—the iconic status associated with it.

The exhibition follows a critical study conducted at the Minerva Humanities Center, Tel Aviv University. Participants include students, graduates, and professors from the Photography Department of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem.
