ON THE NSU COMPLEX, FORENSIC ARCHITECTURE AND THE POTENTIALS OF ARCHITECTURE THEORY

10/24/17 / 19h/ 7pm

EYAL WEIZMAN IN CONVERSATION WITH STEPHAN TRÜBY

Do institutions change shape depending on the people within them? This question has strong political implications, as we are currently experiencing in the US, but it is seen across the spectrum that the attitudes of people lend their institutions a political orientation.
The work of Forensic Architecture understands architecture as a social practice, using architectural methods of investigation to determine the legal implications of political and violent conflicts and to name those responsible.

Eyal Weizman will discuss the methodical approach of Forensic Architecture and the political significance of architecture and theory in the post-factual age by discussing the ‘NSU Complex’ with Prof. Stephan Trüby.

In cooperation with TUM Talks on Architecture, ARCH+, Bayerische Architektenkammer, Lothringer 13 Halle
