Forensic Aesthetics

A series of seminars, workshops and public lectures with Eyal Weizman, Thomas Keenan, Hito Steyerl, Boris Buden, Anselm Franke, Gilles Peress, and Nikolaus Hirsch.

Forensic Aesthetics was a year-long open seminar taught by Thomas Keenan, Eyal Weizman, Nikolaus Hirsch and interdisciplinary guests. The seminar includes a theoretical component in which the analytical and theoretical terms pertaining to forensics will be developed; and a studio component that will allow students to develop and experiment with techniques of investigation and representations. The seminar will culminate in an exhibition and a conference.
