What role can the visual arts play in fact-finding and reporting on human-rights issues? This question will guide Brad Samuels’ lecture at Yale University Art Gallery on October 12th. Presenting casework from SITU’s research division, Brad will discuss emerging methods, tools and technologies for visual and spatial analyses of human-rights violations, focusing on the interdisciplinary nature of these efforts. The talk includes recent work on the destruction of cultural heritage for the International Criminal Court, as well as video on the subject of the Kiev Euromaidan protests, currently on view in the exhibition Before the Event/After the Fact: Contemporary Perspectives on War.
