Eyal Weizman, “Forensic Architecture” video of 2015 Wall Exchange lecture UBC (via Derek Gregory’s Geographical Imaginations.)
Can architecture provide new tools of political analysis and intervention? This question is central to the work of Eyal Weizman, Israeli architect and scholar. By examining buildings, ruins, maps, satellite imagery and citizen images and video, his research teams investigate the sites of contemporary conflicts and monitor the crimes of states. Weizman unpacks state violence from the frontier regions of Pakistan, through the forests of South America to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Weizman visited Vancouver to deliver the fall 2015 Wall Exchange lecture, presented by UBC’s Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies.
