Because of the research topic that occupies us as a group and because of the specific theme that guides our research within the Prometeo project: “From spaces of perpetration to places of memory. Forms of representation”, directed by Vicente Sánchez Biosca, we thought it appropriate to index on this website the lecture “The architecture of public truth”, which brought together the fields of law and aesthetic production. Artists, writers, lawyers, judges, activists, theorists and architects raised questions about the transformations that have developed in recent years in the conditions in which the spatial and material evidence of perpetration and political violence is recorded and presented.
The conference, which featured speakers Jonathan Littel and Eyal Weizman, set out to explore the ways in which new kinds of engagement with the materiality of politics can open up new political possibilities and change existing fields of knowledge.
