The Urban-Data Complex-Forensic Architecture

2015.11.19 点赞次数:0

Can architecture provide new tool of political analysis and intervention? This question is central to the work of Forensic Architecture, an innovative forensic agency, composed of architects, artists, filmmakers lawyers and scientists that investigates the sites of contemporary conflicts in order to monitors state violations of human rights and international law. Forensic Architecture employs architectural methods and new sensing technologies to examine buildings, ruins, cities, satellite imagery and increasingly an emergent type of testimony — images and clips taken by citizens and uploaded online. From the drone warfare in the Pakistani frontier regions, through the forests of central and south America to the battlefields of the Israel-Palestine, the exhibition shows how exposing the logic of violent conflict raised a host of theoretical, historical and aesthetic questions to do with the thresholds of vision and law.
