A set of contributions (archive texts, essays, literary texts, iconographic analysis, art works, interviews ...) by over thirty authors, scholars, writers, journalists, artists, Westerners, Middle Easterners, Jews, Muslims, Christians, atheists, to explore the complexities of contemporary Middle Eastern reality.
How can one invest a present that seems to sputter? One possible way: to work on the notion of the interval, to reassert the spaces and the peculiarities so as to reassert the terms of a dialog with our histories, knowledge and practices. Such are the stakes of this black & white collective work. Here Jerusalem appears as the crystallization of the gap between languages, territories, civilizations, identities, histories and representations. It addresses a part of our European history.
The book is built around archived texts, essays, literary texts, iconographic analyses and interviews. Likewise, the iconography itself is a hybrid. Over thirty authors, scholars, writers, journalists, artists, Westerners and Middle Easterners took part in this publication.
