Abstract: This conference begins with the question "What is Evidence?" Art offers a lens through which we come to recognize the politics of power and abuse. Human Rights: Confronting Images and Testimonies brings together artists, activists, and scholars who will discuss their work in the context of human rights as it transforms the raw material of individual and collective suffering into legible and convincing data, confrontational imagery, and testimony. This conference will begin on Thursday, March 4, at 4 p.m. with a presentation by artist activist Coco Fusco. It will conclude with the collaborative project Combatant Status Review Tribunals, pp. 002954-0034064: A Public Reading. The conference will be held both days at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
