For the month of November 2018, Museumkaart holders can bring a guest without a Museumkaart free of charge to Forensic Justice: our exhibition with works by Turner Prize 2018 nominee 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.

The works in the exhibition investigate a variety of reclamations of social and ecological justice. Alongside existing projects, a new investigation into the role of the police in the murder of young Greek rapper Pavlos Fyssas, co-produced with BAK in 2018, is premiered.

Earlier in 2018, the research agency was awarded the Princess Margriet Award for Culture by the European Cultural Foundation, Amsterdam.
