Eyal Weizman

Eyal Weizman’s work transcends the boundaries of critical theory, political activism and architectural research. He is the founding director of the groundbreaking research agency Forensic Architecture (FA) at Goldsmiths, University of London. FA’s unique counter-investigations into human rights violations by states and corporations use innovative techniques such as open source research, 3-D modelling, spatial and architectural analysis. FA’s works have dealt with violence on the European borders, rightwing extremism in Germany and political murders in Turkey, among others. Its findings have been shown in courtrooms, on news media and at cultural institutions. Weizman is the author of over 15 books and professor of spatial and visual cultures at Goldsmiths.
