THIS PLACE – Israel through the eyes of 12 renowned photographers

The DOX Centre for Contemporary Art is launching the world premiere of THIS PLACE, an international touring exhibition. This unprecedented global cultural project explores the complexities of Israel and the West Bank as place and metaphor – its history, its geography, its inhabitants, its daily life, and the resonance it has for people around the world. THIS PLACE features work from internationally acclaimed photographers such as Josef Koudelka, Frédéric Brenner, Thomas Struth, Fazal Sheikh and Jeff Wall.

The twelve photographers participating in THIS PLACE are Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, Nick Waplington and Frédéric Brenner himself. Together, this group represents the most acclaimed group of photographers to ever turn their attention to Israel and the West Bank. Each photographer spent approximately six months in residence, pursuing his or her own artistic interests.

Through these residencies (between the years 2009 and 2013), thousands of original art works were created, and the traveling exhibition will feature a selection of over 500 photographs. The exhibition’s curator, Charlotte Cotton, an internationally recognized curator and former head of the photography department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), added: “Each artist has created a profound and personal narration of Israel and the West Bank that, collectively, act as a series of guides, leading the viewer into a deeper identification with the realities of its heavily cast contemporary situation.”
