(1000 items available)
The Israeli Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale is dedicated to the question of how the various sacred sites in the country signal a representative image of Israel’s geopolitical situation and social alignment. The illustrated book on this subject, In Statu Quo: Structures of Negotiation, is the most extensive elucidation of a complex system that can be considered a permanent negotiation among various identities, rituals, and customs.The comprehensive publication opens a contemporary discussion of the topic, focusing on five major holy sites that encapsulate the spatio-political phenomenon of the Status Quo. Illustrated with architectural plans, archive documentation, images of the sites and works by visual artists, critical essays from various disciplines investigate the role of architecture and how these agreements have regulated and transformed space.
