Visual Investigative Practices

Quelle: yulsman

WM Romy Kießling

Over the past decade, multidisciplinary research and advocacy organisations, aswell as media platforms, have established new visual investigative practices that transform the way facts are produced and disseminated. Open-source data and advanced digital technologies, coupled with spatial and architectural methodologies, have emerged as promising tools for investigating disputed events, violations of human rights, and fundamental freedoms.

Participants will engage in a comprehensive discussion of the theoretical and conceptual foundations that underpin and frame these new fact-finding practices. Key terms and ideas such as evidence, witness, human rights, post-truth, accountability, and forensic aesthetics will be explored through the lens of philosophical and cultural thought, alongside legal and political understandings. Moreover, the seminar offers a comprehensive overview of the prevalent spatialtemporal methods used in conjunction with digital technologies. It provides an understanding and critical evaluation of contemporary fact-finding practices and their technologies in the context of human rights advocacy and social justice efforts.
