SOMETHING ELSE WAS HERE:
A LOOK INTO ISRAEL’S ZIONIST ECOSCAPE
“Something Else Was Here: A Look into Israel’s Zionist Ecoscape” microtalk for the 2022 Nature of Cities Festival.
530+ Palestinian villages were massacred in order to pave ground for an Israeli state, 182 of which were planted over and remain concealed by non-native forestry. This session investigates Israel’s Zionist ecoscape, how plants, parks, and forests have been used as a mechanism for colonization and indigenous erasure.
Informed by the work of Vivien Sansour, the Palestine Land Society, and Visualizing Palestine.
