Eyal Weizman. Forensic Architecture at work

15 February 2016

Neuman, Michael


Eyal Weizman, the founder of « Forensic Architecture » at the Goldsmiths College (University of London) came to present the project as well as a number of his works at a MSF - Crash conference organised at MSF on July 2, 2015.

At the juncture of cartography and image analysis, judicial expertise and architecture, in places and situations of State violence, "Forensic Architecture" sheds light on the notions of crime by turning "spaces" into evidence.

Eyal Weizman has focused his work, in particular, on the Palestinian Territories and the Israeli occupation. He has analysed the architecture of the colonisation through the prism of surveillance technology, reflected on the convergence of political, military and humanitarian interests, and worked on reconstructing aerial attacks through examining images of rubble. Although not a new subject, this new angle provides totally new reflection on these complex issues.
