The exhibition "LAND. MILK. HONEY. Animal Stories in Imagined Landscapes" explores the relationships between humans, animals, and the environment in the region between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, known as the "land of milk and honey." The exhibition highlights the transformation of the landscape from a promised land to a plan of action, resulting in significant environmental changes and irreversible damage to local fauna and flora. It offers a zoocentric analysis of the region's radical transformation due to the power of ideology, religion, and urbanization.
