The Intradisciplinary Seminar (IDS) Public Lecture Series presents a talk by Eyal Weizman entitled "Forensic Architecture: Violence at the Threshold of Detectability." It is free and open to the public.
Eyal Weizman is an architect, professor of spatial and visual cultures, and Director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London. Since 2014 he has also been a Global Scholar at Princeton University. In 2010 he set up the research agency Forensic Architecture, whose work is documented in the exhibition and book FORENSIS (Sternberg, 2014). In 2007 he set up, with Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti, the architectural collective DAAR in Beit Sahour/Palestine, the work of which is documented in the book Architecture after Revolution (Sternberg, 2014). His other books include Forensic Architecture: Violence at the Threshold of Detectability (Zone Books, 2017), The Conflict Shoreline (with Fazal Sheikh, Steidl and Cabinet, 2015), Mengele’s Skull (with Thomas Keenan, Sternberg, 2012), The Least of all Possible Evils (Verso, 2011), and Hollow Land (Verso, 2007).
The IDS Public Lecture Series consists of lectures by artists, theorists, activists, designers, writers, curators and other practitioners involved in the arts from positions that embody an interdisciplinary approach or that imply new uses for disciplinary traditions.
The IDS Public Lecture Series is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding and support from the Robert Lehman Foundation.
