Free Zone 2006

Free Zone 2006 BASILICO, Gabriele ; Gitai, Amos ; Lissoni, Andrea

In 1993, the great Israeli film director Amos Gitai visited Gabriele Basilico's exhibition on Beirut in Paris. He was greatly struck by it, and asked him to collaborate on a project about his father Munio, who had worked as an architect in Israel in the 1930s. A decade later, Gitai contacts Basilico once again for a project on the 'Free Zone', the free-trade area lying between Jordan and Israel, where he shot the namesake film in 2005. In Basilico's eyes, Israel is "an instable piece of Europe drifting through a very different territory." But his real destination is the Free Zone itself, an area that lives on trade, especially that of cars. As Basilico writes: "The desert lies all around this ever-expanding city of steel and sheet metal." Perhaps a little like Blade Runner, and certainly a node in the network of globalisation. Most of the photos have never been published before, and show us Basilico in the role of both reporter and traveller.
