Reconfigured Territories in the MENA Region: Visualized Landscapes in the Era of Digitization and Migration

Reconfigured Territories in the MENA Region: Visualized Landscapes in the Era of Digitization and Migration

With a focus on visualized landscape and critical cartography embedded in an art history discourse, this proposal brings forth issues that inform contemporary approaches to landscape theory during a time of reconfiguration and fluctuation in the MENA region. The art works surveyed in this proposal center on questions of power in the age of technology and the role of visual representation in conflict territory and zones of transmigration. They look at the failures in the construct of the nation state and address local citizenship through a multiplicity of political, social and cultural practices and procedures. Through changes in the visual language of landscape, the research will address the frameworks of space and territorial demarcations in the era of digitization and migration.
