Media Technology, Law and Aesthetics
Marit Paasche and Judy Radul
What questions of representation, judgment and justice cross borders between art and the law? Through the contribution of an all-star roster of artists and scholars – including John Baldessari, Harun Farocki and Dan Graham – this anthology explores how the aesthetics of new media technology affect the judicial system in relation to fundamental concepts such as truth and representation. Since the early twentieth century, the justice system has come to rely on a variety of new representational modes and technologies when considering contemporary art. The law is increasingly staged on a screen and the photographs, video documents, audio recordings used as evidence are not entirely distinct from their correlates in contemporary art, cinema and mass media. Essays by Julie A. Cassiday, Costas Douzinas, Piyel Haldar, Martin Jay, Peter Goodrich, Richard Mohr, Judy Radul, Avital Ronell, Eyal Sivan, Cornelia Vismann. Artistic contributions by John Baldessari, Dan Graham, Harun Farocki, Stan Douglas, Aernout Mik, Agency, Judy Radul, Renzo Martens, Ana Torfs, The Atlas Group, René Magritte, Model Court, Rana Hamadeh, Thomas Demand and Les Levine.
