Forensic Architecture is a multidisciplinary research agency consisting of architects, software developers, filmmakers, journalists, artists, scientists, and lawyers. Using CCTV footage, floor plans, mobile videos/images, and testimonies they create architectural models, films and 3D renderings which are then used as forensic evidence in legal cases.
In the exhibition, which is Forensic Architecture’s first large scale solo exhibition in Sweden, presents three installations: 77sqm_9:26min, Outsourcing Risk and Drone Strikes: Miranshah. The first installation highlights the assassination of Halit Yozgat where a police officer’s testimony came to be questioned. The second deals with the fire at Ali Enterprises textile factory where workers claim that images published from a previous inspection did not show the actual factory. The third is about a drone strike in Pakistan.
With the exhibition, the Röhsska Museum shows how digital tools and material knowledge can contribute new information and thus challenging both democratic and authoritarian states’ forensic monopoly.
