online on the website: 21. – 28. 9. 2022

During the evening programme, the project will introduce the ways in which different forms of current audiovisual production can become a tool of struggle against environmental and human rights crimes. As a reaction to the growing distrust of the image caused by our dependence on media conveying the everyday experience and the uncertainty connected with the acceptance of objective facts about the world in times of hybrid and culture wars, a number of artists are coming up with an effort to vindicate the statement value of art. They are doing so despite the prevailing influence of corporate technology companies and through collaboration with civic journalists and female activists. The artists-researchers combine scientific and legal expert resources in their work, and they expand the aesthetic function of art by a legal and political dimension. The screened works will show a selection of the forensic turn in contemporary art.
