Territories is an exhibition which deals with the production of space, its conquest, occupancy, defense and control. In the context of the global fragmentation of physical and cultural space, the analytical, cartographic and artistic contributions to this exhibition develop and examine the processes of the production of space and its social and political implications. Territories presents new works by architects, artists and art-collectives that reflect the increasing interest in interdisciplinary methods and practices in the fields of geography, architecture, and the planning of space. 

The exhibition's starting point is the examination of the political role of architecture in Israel and the Middle East. This reflects the numerous debates that have taken place in Israel over the past several years about the settlements, the use of architecture as a strategic weapon and the role of planners and architects.

Territories was curated by Anselm Franke, Eyal Weizman, Rafi Segal and Stefano Boeri
