Vikki Bell

is Professor of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her books include Culture and Performance (Berg, 2007) and The Art of Post-Dictatorship: Ethics and Aesthetics in Transitional Argentina (Routledge/Glasshouse, 2014). Widely published in peer-reviewed journals, her work has addressed questions of ethics, aesthetics, subjectivity and politics across the social sciences and theoretical humanities. Recently her focus has been cultural-aesthetic aspects of transitional justice and the promise of archives in Argentina, Chile and Colombia, funded by the ESRC, the Newton fund and the British Academy.
Liliana Gómez (Hg.): Performing Human Rights

The invisibilization of political violence, its material traces and spatial manifestations, characterize (post)conflict situations. Yet counter-semantics and dissonant narratives that challenge this invisibility have been articulated by artists, writers, and human rights activists that increasingly seek to contest the related historical amnesia. Adopting “performance” as a concept that is defined by repetitive, aesthetic practices—such as speech and bodily habits through which both individual and collective identities are constructed and perceived (Susan Slyomovics)—this collection addresses various forms of performing human rights in transitional situations in Spain, Latin America, and the Middle East. Bringing scholars together with artists, writers, and curators, and working across a range of disciplines, Performing Human Rights addresses these instances of omission and neglect, revealing how alternate institutional spaces and strategies of cultural production have intervened in the processes of historical justice and collective memory.
