Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are perceived as two polar opposites in the cultural geography of Israel. Jerusalem is a historical city in the Judean mountains with a rich and sacred past, while Tel Aviv, the first Hebrew city, seemed to emerge from the sand dunes of the Mediterranean Sea 100 years ago. Jerusalem, the official capital of Israel, endured wars and siege, while Tel Aviv has mostly remained outside the battlefield. Jerusalem is associated with religion, while Tel Aviv is a symbol of modern secularism. Through the years, both cities went through massive changes — geographical, cultural and social — and their images have developed in complex ways. In this course, we will examine prose, poetry, art and film which portray the two cities from the first half of the 20th century to present day, alongside historical and theoretical studies.
