The category of the “open” is currently spreading in discourses describing how the circulation of digitized cultural heritage should be implemented. Israel’s National Photographic collection recently underwent a change in its copyright policy: it seeks to enhance the circulation of the collection on digital networks while at the same controlling the political uses of these images. What are the conditions framing the publication and reuse of this archive on the Internet? The possible re-appropriations of this visual memory raise a legal and political debate around “open content” and its instrumentalization by propaganda.
