Sun, Mar 16, 2014 Conference Wolfgang Kaleck in conversation with Anselm Franke
Public Truth: On Human Rights Abuse
Just or unjust, legal or illegal: that is the question. What is just when exploitation and construction defects come together, factories collapse and nobody is responsible? When states can arrest and torture people without a trial? When and how does the law work in such cases? How can violations of human rights be prosecuted, and how far can we get? A conversation on gaps in the law and morality, with Wolfgang Kaleck and Anselm Franke, HKW.
Wolfgang Kaleck is a human rights lawyer and secretary general of the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, ECCHR, in Berlin. Anselm Franke is head of visual arts and film at Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
