2020 – Bethlehemland

Bethlehemland is a stranger´s observational study on the West Bank fences and walls separating Israel and the West Bank and how it deteriorated its surroundings and in turn encourages civil disobedience which is expressed through the language.

The point of departure is that architecture, by its presence, intentionally guides and structures human behaviour in a specific way.

However its users can either intentionally or unintentionally present a subtle resistance and critique through both the written and visual media. In this way the language can reformulate the perception and meaning of the structure.

It is filmed in the city of Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Baqa Al-Gharbiye areas and their adjoining villages.
