How are stories of justice told and visualised? In what ways do stereotypes of victims entrench biases of race, class and gender? What presumptions do we have about violence and forms of justice?

In this book launch and exhibition event, these questions will be critically explored as questions relating to the political relationship between aesthetics and international justice. Through a variety of media, from poetry to comics, international justice’s dominant aesthetics will be explored, as well as resistance to them in the form of counter-aesthetics.
