With Eyal Weizman (Forensic Architecture, London) and Christina Varvia (Forensic Architecture, London)
On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition Forensic Justice, Eyal Weizman and Christina Varvia give a lecture on the forensic practice of research agency Forensic Architecture, London.
Earlier in 2018, the collective was awarded the Princess Margriet Award for Culture by the European Culture Foundation, Amsterdam. The lecture by Eyal Weizman and Christina Varvia taking place at the opening of the exhibition Forensic Justice has been organized in collaboration with the European Cultural Foundation, as part of their program highlighting the work of the 2018 laureates.
Part of Propositions #7: Evidentiary Methods
Propositions #7: Evidentiary Methods—the public program in the context of the exhibition Forensic Justice and part of the BAK series Propositions for Non-Fascist Living (2017–2020)—expands upon the notion of forensic justice in a series of lectures, screenings, and workshops on methodologies for articulating claims within the multidimensional space of aesthetics, law, architecture, politics, and ecology. The series deepens the understanding of works by, or made in collaboration with, Forensic Architecture, including investigations that are not presented in the exhibition. Focusing on techniques and innovative evidentiary methods at the intersection of law, art, politics, and the changing media landscape employed in the forensic practice, the gatherings create a space for dialogue and exchange between concrete cases examined by Forensic Architecture and other ongoing political struggles in the Netherlands and beyond. The series is conceived in collaboration with Nick Axel (architectural theorist, Amsterdam).
Please note that the program is subject to change. Tickets can be ordered via Eventbrite.
