On Turning Local Sites Into Global Sights: When Zionist Politics Met Photography

Hosted By: Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies at Columbia University, Jewish Studies at Fordham University

Throughout the existence of the Palestine Mandate, photography was considered a prime means to draw global attention to the Zionist presence in the Middle East.

This talk approaches local and international discussions on the nature of Jewish statehood through the photographer’s lens to challenge the assumption that the production of Zionist visual arts merely corroborated the political ideology of the Labor Zionist establishment.
