Forensic Architecture

The history of modernity can be narrated as a “longue durée” process of environing the earth. After the production of a “terrestrial globe” initiated with early modernity/colonialism, the “bio-spherical globe” that emerges with bio-geographic models in the late nineteenth century, and the ecosystemic turn of the ’60s and ’70s, we may be experiencing the formation of a different perspective towards the planet, more geological than territorial or biological, and therefore the formation of a political terrain defined not only by the geo and the bio, but also by a novel plain of struggle that, for lack of better term, could be tentatively named the earth-political––Terra-Politica.
