Three cases that the agency has been investigating had difficulties this week.

Mapping Israeli Settlements on the West Bank

The Italian court voted against releasing the confiscated boat, as it ruled that the country did have jurisdiction to seize the ship. The agency will now have to present its evidence later this year.

When there is an effort to erase those violent events, just the effort to record, to clarify and to debunk the official line, it's an act of resistance towards that erasure. Forensic Architecture is the second architectural organisation to be shortlisted for the UK's most important art award, with London-based collective Assemble winning the prize in All four nominees tackle political or humanitarian issues in their work.

Weizman presents the idea of human history written only by and for nation states, not their people.

When we conceive of justice for ourselves and the world, that lens is always prefigured for the state viewpoint. But perhaps through experts like Weizman and his colleagues at Forensic Architecture, total control of that lens can be wrested little by little, to accommodate those who need it most. The book exposes readers to a candid, much-needed understanding of the relationship between settlements, architecture, politics, and violence. This awareness is even more important in developed countries whose advocacy is necessary for wrongdoings like those described within the book to be recognized.


The investigative work of Eyal Weizman and his colleagues at Forensic Architecture is truly remarkable, breaking novel theoretical ground while actively supporting struggles for justice. Again and again, landscapes of power, violence, resistance and ecological stress are transformed in stunning new ways. Among the many revelations in these pages is a new mapping of the connections between climate-change, drought, drones and armed conflict.

These are powerful analytic tools that will be indispensable to the construction of a new human rights framework. In many respects Forensic Architecture is the current reincarnation of Soviet Russia's Factography, a collective enterprise that, in the 's and 30's, was geared towards the construction of facts, as opposed to merely documenting them. The difference between both endeavors, each similarly brazen in taking advantage of unprecedented advances of media technology, is that the facts that Forensic Architecture wishes to re construct are for the most part acts of state violence that the perpetrating state deliberately conceals.

Those facts are registered in buildings or traces thereof , which Weizman and his team equate both to photographs sensors and to tools for decoding other sensors such as the clouds of smoke hovering over a bombed city.


Analyzing the vast bank of images provided by social media in conflict zones through a computation of differential parallaxes, Forensic Architecture is fast becoming the most efficient visual machine against the suppression of evidence by the authors of crimes against humanity.

Recent history tells us that its work will be evermore needed.
