LEGAL MEDIA
A COLLOQUIUM IN MEMORY OF CORNELIA VISMANN
JUNE 10 – 11, 2011

The death, last year, of legal and media scholar Cornelia Vismann is grieved
by the two departments in which she spent time.  She was a Leverhulme
Research Professor in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths and the Birkbeck School
of Law in 2006 as well as co-organiser of “Eyewitness – The Documentary Turn
in Legal and Visual Cultures” in 2008. ¬†Cornelia left friends and scholars
with a unique intellectual legacy that spanned the disciplinary divides
between art, literature, media, philosophy, architecture, and law.

Rather than an interrogation of her work, this colloquium celebrates the
intellectual life of Cornelia Vismann by bringing together legal scholars,
contemporary artists and media theorists to build upon and extend the ground
breaking ideas and provocative discussions that her work has generated.
Together, we will try to evolve Vismann’s project and interrogate issues of
law, philosophy, and media as they continue to ‘write’ and ‘rewrite’ each
other juridically and culturally. The event is structured around three areas
of investigation captured by three of her texts:

“Files” on the obscure power of the legal files, “Tele-Tribunals” on the mediatization of legal hearings and “The Love of Ruins” on the discursive function of the fragment in writing and matter.

ALL EVENTS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
