In the past decade and a half, architecture exhibitions have led a social change in the Israeli architecture discourse, which has made a transition from aesthetic and stylistic interpretation to research that examines the political and social dimensions of architecture. Architectural exhibitions make it possible to present political arguments through visual tools. The series of photos in the exhibition 'Separation' demonstrated how the logic of separation—as a political, cultural, and spatial concept—is innate to urban and rural landscape design in Israel.
