Forensic Architecture founder and director, Eyal Weizman, will be delivering a talk about the group’s radical research methods, focussing on the examination and visualization of human rights violations whose novel combination of design and politics is causing international furore.
The lecture will coincide with the exhibition “Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design”, running from 29 September to 10 March 2019 at the Vitra Design Museum. This will present the first large retrospective focussing on the designer, author, and activist Victor J. Papanek (1923–1998). Papanek was one of the twentieth century’s most influential pioneers of a socially and ecologically oriented approach to design beginning in the 1960s.
