Forensic Aesthetics:
Thomas Keenan and Eyal Weizman in conversation on their recent book Mengele's Skull

 April 24, 2012 

On Tuesday, April 24, Eyal Weizman will be joining Thomas Keenan for Princeton University's final Media and Modernity event of the 2011-12 academic year. The two will be there to discuss the relationship between human rights, legal-political discourse, and the ethical claims made on us by artifacts and objects. This discussion on “forensic aesthetics” will draw on a book they recently co-wrote on Josef Mengele (Mengele's Skull: The Advent of Forensic Aesthetics) as well as Weizman's upcoming book, The Least of All Possible Evils: Humanitarian Violence From Arendt to Gaza, which uses his “forensic-architectural” framework to examine how the rhetoric of human rights (“the lesser evil”) can be used to legitimate different kinds of violence.
