Join architect, scholar and curator Eyal Weizman in conversation with artist and cultural theorist Susan Schuppli for this lunchtime talk surrounding politics and philosophy.
A key figure within the study of contemporary humanism and architecture, Weizman’s most recent book, The Least of all Posssible Evils (Verso 2011) investigates the genealogy of human rights, from classical and Christian ethics through to modern political philosophy and contemporary theory. Weizman is also a founding member of the collective, Decolonising Architecture Art Residency (DAAR) in Bethlehem and is Professor of Spatial and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths College, University of London where he directs the Centre for Research Architecture.
Weizman has published numerous articles and books (Hollow Land, Verso 2007; A Civilian Occupation, Verso 2003; Yellow Rythms and the Territories 1,2, and 3 series). In addition to sitting on the board of numerous councils worldwide, he also manages the ‘Forensic Architecture’ project, funded by the European Research Council.
Susan Schuppli is an artist and cultural theorist whose research interests include the relationship between architecture and media events. Her creative projects have been exhibited at The Kitchen in New York, the Brussels Biennal, Belgium, Artspace, Australia, and most recently at Museum London in Canada. Schuppli is also on the editorial board of the journals SITE (Stockholm) and Second Nature (Melbourne) and is a member of the Photo-Lexic research group based in Tel Aviv.
