The Jerusalem Show VII 

Chapter Six: Writing

Performances, talks and walks

 

Al Ma'mal (Tile Factory) & Swedish Christian Study Centre

A musician acts both vertically and horizontally in multiple time segments while performing with an instrument and notes. Reading the notes on both treble and bass clefs at the same time signifies the vertical reading; reading the 'yet to come' part while playing in the present time, when connected with the performed element, indicates a perception of multiple times simultaneously. All forms of performance constitute the act of 'writing' rather than reading for the audience. The question, then, is how to multiply and superimpose this act within a current situation in the city.

The old city, perched on a rock, has been destroyed, rebuilt, venerated and contested throughout its history. While the brutal contemporary fracture unfolds in our sight, there is no escaping the fractured sediments of its history.  Experiences are numerous while meandering through the Kasbah fabric and every stone has stories to tell. In this timeless labyrinth networks of walks and ideas collide. The exhibitions are scattered around the city in different venues, their localities invites different routes. Three different walks encompass all the sites, every route tells a different story of the multiple facets of Jerusalem.
