Forensis: The Architecture of Public Truth

From tracing fingerprints and analysing bones, to tracking Internet activities, forensics is central to the ways by which states police and govern their subjects. Taken from book: "This book includes the work of the architects, artists, filmmakers, lawyers, and theorists who participated directly in the “Forensic Architecture” project in the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths University of London. It includes forensic investigations undertaken by the project and its collaborators aimed at producing new kinds of evidence for use by international prosecutorial teams, political organisations, NGOs, and the UN. It also brings together research and essays that situate contemporary forensic practices within broader political, historical, and aesthetic discourse."
