Forensic Architecture a Finalist for the Vera List Center Prize for Art and Politics 2016-2018

Launched to recognize the Center’s 20th anniversary, the Vera List Center Biennial Prize for Art and Politics honours an artist or group of artists who have taken great risks to advance social justice in profound and visionary ways. International in scope, the biennial prize is awarded for a particular project’s long-term impact, boldness, and artistic excellence.

The New School will host a conference on 3-4 November 2017 to complement the winning project (Seeds of Change by Maria Thereza Alves), where Forensic Architecture’s Hannah Mezaros-Martin will participate in a panel discussion, together with Gulf Labor, about the visibility and invisibility of the materiality of buildings and infrastructure. This discussion, The House We’re Building (Panel Discussion III on November 4), will explore the visibility of markers of absences and how alignments between organic and non-organic matter can result in affirmative acts of community building.
