Eyal Weizman: Forensic Aesthetics, the Sequel

On May 23rd at the Städelschule, a lecture by Eyal Weizman: “Forensic Aesthetics, the Sequel.” Description:

The principle of forensics assumes that events, as complex and multivalented as they might be, are registered within the material properties of objects, bodies or spaces – relational objects that we will refer to as “things”. The principle of forensics assumes two interrelated sets of spatial relations. The first is a relation between an event and the objects in which it is registered, and the second is a relation between the object and the forum that is assembled around it. Forensics is thus both the investigation of objects and the creation of forums.
