Forensic Architecture. Hacia una estética investigativa

In 2010 a group of architects, artists, filmmakers, journalists, scientists, and lawyers founded Forensic Architecture (FA), a research agency that investigates state and corporate violence, especially when it impacts upon the built environment. To do this, they produce evidence files comprising building surveys, models, animations, video analyses and interactive cartographies, and present them in forums ranging from the general media to international courts, truth commissions and citizen tribunals.

This publication features six of its recent investigations and it includes an introduction by Cuauhtémoc Medina and Ferran Barenblit, a conversation between Eyal Weizman, Yve-Alain Bois, Hal Foster and Michel Feher, and a postface by the curator Rosario Güiraldes, who highlights the necessity to embrace an engaged aesthetic practice that combines both a critical understanding and tactical use of facts.
