Natasha Ginwala presented her ongoing curatorial and research process in conceiving Contour Biennale 8. Through artistic acts that challenge procedures of testimony, evidence production and witnessing; as well as the performative nature of the trial. The Great Council established in Mechelen during the fifteenth century stands as a historical reminder of a court architecture that first sought to address the European Lowlands through rational jurisprudence.

This talk is realised within the framework of Anthropocene Response, a series of guest lectures at Translocal Institute that provide a platform to consider changing paradigms of social, economic and cultural thought in the light of the awareness of ecological crisis.
