Opening: 14 March 2014
Conference: 15–16 March 2014
The FORENSIS exhibition presents the work of the Forensic Architecture project at Goldsmiths, University of London. It includes the presentation of of forensic investigations — involving imaging processes, satellite images, 3D visualizations, models and videos — were mobilised as evidence on behalf of prosecution teams, civil society organizations, activists, human rights groups, and the United Nations. These contemporary forensic practices are situated within broader political, historical, and aesthetic contexts.
FORENSIS raises fundamental questions about the conditions under which spatial and material evidence is recorded and presented, and tests the potential of new types of evidence to expand our juridical imagination, open up forums for political dispute and practice, and articulate new claims for justice.
Curated by Anselm Franke and Eyal Weizman.
FORENSIS is a co-production by Haus der Kulturen der Welt, funded by the Capital Cultural Fund, and by Forensic Architecture, ERC-funded research project based at Goldsmiths, University of London.
