Forensic Architecture refers to the presentation of spatial analysis within contemporary legal and political forums. The project undertakes research that maps, images, and models sites of violence within the framework of international humanitarian law and human rights. Through its public activities it also situates forensic architecture within broader historical and theoretical contexts.
Living Death Camps
Living Death Camps is a project that seeks to investigate the multiple relations between two concentration/death camps located in the former Yugoslavia and the problems associated with commemorating their histories. Neither the Staro Sajmište, Nazi camp from WWII built on the site of a former fairground at the edge of the city and now located in the centre of Belgrade, nor the Omarska/Prijedor camp used to incarcerate and execute Muslim men in the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s can simply be consigned to history as spatial relics.

What is important about all these objects-images is that they condense time within themselves, and that in excavating them we expand outward in time.
