Jerusalem and the Principles of Conflict Urbanism
Anywhere
Edited by Phlilipp Misselwitz and Tim Rieniets.

Jerusalem has become a prototype in the age of new urban violence.
City of Collision looks at the city of Jerusalem as an example and possible laboratory as a site of conflict. It explores, amongst others topics- territorial mapping, the so-called security fence, urban enclaves, exclaves, the approach to monuments and no-man's-land. Writers include Sharon Rotbard, Salim Tamari, Eyal Weizman and Oren Yftachel. This book also features specially commissioned photographs by Bas Princen and Polly Braden and is illustrated with over forty new detailed thematic maps.

The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
