The Envelope Project: Snake CodePerformative Lecture
Jonathan Omer Mizrahi
In the years before and after the establishment of the State of Israel, the area surrounding the Gaza Strip thrived as a result of the construction of civilian, military, and agricultural communities serving as a front, facing the border with Egypt. For the last 17 years, following the dismantling of Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip, the area has become known in the Israeli consciousness as the “Gaza Envelope,” a term that has gained legal status. In his performative lecture, Jonathan Omer Mizrahi offers a creative and associative psycho-geographical analysis of the area, using forensic and landscape images, moving between the notions of territory, land, and soot.
