    Andrea Pavoni

    Chapter from the book: Pavoni, A et al. 2018. SEE.


    At a time of copious (academic) interest in the post-human capacities of bodies, this Law and the Senses series calls for a radical reconsideration of the polarised narrative of the law as widely understood in socio-political discourse. This can only happen through eradicating the sensorial from the phenomenological and overcoming the separation between law and the senses. Often associated with truth, vision is the most uncompromising of senses because it remains faithful to the material world, yet its relationship with the subject is not always as straightforward as it appears: seeing is not (only) performed for the eye to acknowledge, rather, it emerges out of perception and its (inevitable) inaccuracy is propulsive (in the sense that it produces effects). Each of the present contributions explores insightfully the between law and seeing through various angles such as abstract photography, memory and reconciliation, iconography, political rhetorics, idealism, and picpoetry.
