Justice as Medium

Translocal Institute
13 June 2016

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. We now face the limits of justice unravelling as a volatile crises of ethics within our collective present.

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.
