Eyal Weizman and Anselm Franke speak in detail about their collaborative effort and exhibition Forensis at HKW, Berlin. The interview by Nilourfar Tajeri and Gal Kirn tackled three major topics that emerged in the conferences during the exhibition: first, they spoke about the aesthetical implications of forensic realism and about the genesis of their collaborative work; secondly, they traced the relationship of forensics to emancipatory politics; and thirdly, they observed some theoretical and political underpinnings of the major shift from the age of the witness to the age of forensics, this connected to potential consequences for a different politics and culture of forensic memory.
