Helmed by curators Ifat Finkelman, Deborah Pinto Fdeda, Oren Sagiv and Tania Coen-Uzzielli, the Israeli Pavilion presents ‘In Status Quo: Structures of Negotiation’, an exhibition that explores how regulatory standards were set to manage conflicts and facilitate co-existence in the Holy places. Five case studies reveal different Holy spaces including Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Mughrabi Ascent, Western Wall Plaza, Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb and investigates Israel’s disputed territoriality and fragile system of coexistence.
