BAK and Nieuwjaarsduik – Forensic Justice

Forensic Oceanography & Forensic Architecture, The Iuventa, 18 June 2017, 2018

On Sunday 13 January 2019, a new Cultural Sunday will take place: the well-known Nieuwjaarsduik. On this day, the exhibition Forensic Justice can be visited free of charge from 10.00 until 20.00 hrs. The exhibition is on view until 27 January 2019, so this day is a good opportunity to see the exhibition before it closes!

Forensic Justice is the first comprehensive exhibition in the Netherlands with Forensic Architecture. Forensic Architecture is a London-based independent and interdisciplinary research agency comprised of, among others, artists, scientists, lawyers, filmmakers, and architects. The agency uses novel research and aesthetico-political practice to investigate abuses of human rights and, more broadly, the rights of nature. They provide critical evidence for international courts and work with a wide range of citizen-led activist groups, NGOs, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, as well as with art institutions as significant public forums for distributing the investigations.

Forensic Architecture is nominated for the Turner Prize 2018. Earlier in 2018, the research agency was awarded the Princess Margriet Award for Culture by the European Cultural Foundation, Amsterdam.
