The Power of Images: law, aesthetics and memory regimes

Project: Other


The Power of Images aims to demonstrate how the images of trials have a capacity to ‘speak legally’ and how they tend to shape contemporary narratives about the past in transitioning societies. At present, legal scholarship is calling for a non-linear understanding of the way that a post-dictatorial state addresses its predecessor state’s violent past. An image can be the key. This project is sustained by two key points. First of all, images can be regarded as a powerful tool of propaganda and political justice. Secondly, we can view these images as legacies of the past with a critical role in contemporary transitional law and politics.
