The project Evidence on Trial by Susan Schuppli represents evidentiary documents sourced from the Archives of  the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) -  including videos, photographs, aerial footage, diagrams, floor plans, models, and maps marked by witnesses. While most exhibits in the ICTY archive are transcriptions of oral testimonies and witness statements, this project set out to examine the issues that emerge when material evidence is reprocessed by the legal machine that is the international court. What happens when media and other non-textual evidence enter into legal proceedings as material witnesses entrusted with the task of testifying before the tribunals of history?

Evidence on Trial is made possible with the support of Arts Council England and Forensic Architecture.
