Identidad, espectáculo y representación: las candidaturas de Israel en el Festival de la Canción de Eurovisión

José Luis Panea Fernández

Resumen


A partir de una sofisticada inversión, capital y simbólica, el Festival de Eurovisión genera anualmente un espectáculo audiovisual en la televisión pública problematizando conceptos como “comunidad”, “Europeidad” e “identidad cultural”. Siguiendo las investigaciones recientes en el ámbito anglosajón, recorreremos sus distintas ediciones hallando las paradojas inherentes a la imagen en movimiento en el diálogo entre “canción” y “nación” con la participación de países “en los márgenes” de Europa, cuyo triunfo –puesto que el país vencedor ha de ser el organizador al año siguiente– ha descentrado la sede anfitriona y la “marca Eurovisión”. Nos centraremos en las candidaturas de Israel (1973-2018) para debatir, por tanto, cómo esta nación es representada en dicho mega-evento a través de la canción.
