Forensic Architecture Chr. 5: The Logic of Denial
This lecture builds on Weizman's long term research into the history of forensic practices and the practice of Forensic Architecture. In this talk he will concentrate on attempts to articulate and deny truth claims in relation to war using various modes of sensing. He will also discuss new investigations undertaken by the Forensic Architecture teams in Palestine, Guatamala, Pakistan and former Yugoslavia.
Eyal Weizman is an architect, Professor of Visual Cultures and director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London. Since 2011 he also directs the European Research Council funded project, Forensic Architecture.
