Case - Jerusalem Region (Israel)

Infrastructures, particularly roads are preconditional for spatial and social segregation on the West Bank. Fava-researchers Rob van der Bijl (urban planner) and Liesbeth Sluiter (photographer) investigate these infrastructures since 2004. They compile maps, images and histories of the Jerusalem region which they conceive as a key area within the West Bank. Site visits and investigations in november 2010 have been focused on several road projects in this area, including latest events at Highway 443.
