(re)programming – Strategies for Self-Renewal
Curated and conducted by Marta Peirano
How to Tell
With Eyal Weizman
Monday, 15 November 2021 at 7 PM CET
STREAMING & LIVE CHAT: http://aksioma.org/reprogramming/
Truth is hardly making it under an information ecosystem defined by speed, exploitation, opacity and inequality. But journalism is not in danger, it is just happening somewhere else.
In the last event of the (re)programming series, Eyal Weizman, founder of the research agency Forensic Architecture, will discuss the new genre of journalistic procedurals and a community of practice that, under the moniker Investigative Commons, seeks to confront the disinformation machine of “counter-factual” neo-fascist groups by socializing the development and deployment of “counter-forensic” evidence.
Eyal Weizman is a Professor of Spatial and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London and a member of the Technology Advisory Board of the International Criminal Court and the Centre for Investigative Journalism. In 2019 he was elected life fellow of the British Academy and appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire in the 2020 New Year Honours for services to architecture. He is the author of more than fifteen books with numerous international translations, including Hollow Land (2007) on the architecture of the Israeli occupation, Mengele's Skull (2012) on the birth of a forensic approach to understanding war crimes, and Forensic Architecture (2017) as a call for transformative politics and an in-depth introduction to the history, practices and double binds of the eponymous research agency.
Special guests: Matevž Čelik, Marko Peljhan, Urška Henigman
