Description
 
Susan Tumarkin Goodman (editor)

Publisher: Yale University Press

Photography and video are powerful artistic mediums for mining day-to-day life, and nowhere is this more evident than in Israel today. Dateline Israel: New Photography and Video Art presents the work of twenty-three artists who view Israel since the year 2000 as a society that has outgrown the utopian model of its settlement and statehood. The inclusion of works by both
Israelis and non-Israelis in these galleries reflects the growing emergence of Israel as a subject of widening interest among artists.

Contested land, religious ideology, and the rights and needs of Israelis and Palestinians are concerns that these artists negotiate as they seek to portray a nation often divided against itself.

This exhibition presents a country in flux that only a multiplicity of perspectives can bring into focus. While Dateline Israel may reinforce the impression of a place where conflict can overwhelm daily life, the photographs and videos in this exhibition also offer a richer and more nuanced view of the Jewish state, revealing the tangled, elusive reality of an ever-evolving land.
