Opening Keynote: Forensic Architecture

The opening keynote will be presented by the extraordinary Prof. Eyal Weizman, founding director and principal investigator of Forensic Architecture, with opening remarks from Senator Ratna Omidvar, an internationally recognized voice on migration, diversity and inclusion and Fiona Salzen, British Council Trustee. Forensic Architecture is a multidisciplinary research group that uses architectural techniques and technologies to investigate cases of state violence and violations of human rights around the world.

“[Forensic Architecture] develops evidentiary systems in relation to specific cases; in so doing, it acts as an architectural detective agency, working with NGOs and human rights lawyers to uncover facts that confound the stories told by police, military, states and corporations.” The Guardian
