►a'21: Threshold Infrastructures of Residual Spaces-III
:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN) ::
Forensic Architecture (FA) is a research agency, based at Goldsmiths, University of London, carrying out investigations with and on behalf of communities and individuals affected by conflict, police brutality, border regimes and environmental violence. In this workshop, FA researcher Stefanos Levidis will discuss the tools and techniques the agency has developed and employed over the past years in order to counter-investigate cases of state violence at the external borders of the EU. Drawing on several complementing case studies, participants in the workshop will be introduced to complex methodologies of spatial and architectural analysis, open-source investigation, digital modelling, and immersive technologies, as well as documentary research, situated interviews, and cross-disciplinary collaboration. The diverse spectrum of actors and practices involved in these investigations provides critical insight into how novel modes of evidence and testimony amplification emerge, and how interdisciplinary and collaborative research provides a pathway to democratising the processes of evidence production that have been traditionally monopolised by the state.
