Competing Iconographies in Jerusalem's Old City
The Old City of Jerusalem is at the core of an ongoing visual struggle between two sets of iconographies, with the Palestinian and Israeli sides trying to assert by this mean their clairm to the City, both on a private and a public level, with diasporic and tourists as their target audience. This struggle has led to the appearance of a specific visual culture of the Old City, with visitors being entangled in this struggle. At the same time, this specific target has had a very strong influence on the choice of images, which are designed to fit its tastes and demands in a global cultural context.
