Forensic Architecture - Towards research aestheticsExhibitions and activities
04/28/2017 - 10/15/2017

A small group of researchers recently started research work on the violations of human rights. It is called Forensic Architecture and is characterized for using architecture as a methodology tool to investigate armed conflict and environment destruction. Their methods are complemented with other sources of evidence, such as digital media, social networks, remote sensing, traditional research and testimonials. As a result of their work in collaboration with NGOs, activist groups, Amnesty International and United Nations, they have been able to present obvious evidence for international forums. The Macba is now presenting an exhibition, where we can enter this practice and understand its origins, history, achievements and limitations. We will also be able to see how Forensic Architecture explains how public truth occurs and the new forms of state violence.
