Mini Israel: The Israeli Place between the Global and the Miniature

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

A soldier stands in front of a miniature model of the Israeli Officer School in Mini Israel, where lile toy cadets are marching in an endless loop. He jumps to aention and salutes them. His action can be interpreted in two opposite ways. He may be displaying his deep, heartfelt respect and admiration, replacing the toy soldiers for “real” ones; he may also be jesting, thereby subtly criticizing militarism, the practice of saluting, or maybe the model’s presumptuousness to truthfully represent social reality.
