From the vault

'There are -obviously existing within a criminal context- forums to judge fast violence, eruptive violence, momentary, instantaneous… Are there really forums to judge slow violence?'

Eyal Weizman

Forensic Architecture is an emergent field of work and agency focusing on research into human rights abuse and environmental justice. Based at Goldsmiths, University of London, its interdisciplinary team produces reports for NGOs, human rights lawyers and activist organizations and presents cases in a variety of forums, calling into question official narratives of aggression and conflict.

By way of Forensic Architecture’s firm belief that “context exists in the fraction of a second”, we delve into cases like the Rodney King trial or the 2014 Israeli attack on Gaza to look at the terminology included in the agency’s lexicon and analyze its techniques, use of media, and energetic aesthetic approach.
