Jerusalem (Despair) Syndrome
Curator's note: This poster incorporates a reference - the three people in the foreground - from Manet's "Le Déjeuner Sur L’herbe"
It is a remix of "Visit Palestine" - it has reversed the tree's orientation and incorporated many new and controversial elements of Jerusalem's skyline - the Apartheid Wall, the Zionists-only light railway, the controversial wooden ramp (since removed) to the Dome of the Rock plaza, the Jewish-only male/female segregation areas at the Wailing Wall and the (projected) near-total urbanization of the area surrounding the Dome of the Rock - the Haram al-Sharif, among others.
