The Gift, by Navid Nuur (2016), permanent installation in front of the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

How do we visualize international law, why, and for whom? What happens when an artist sets up an international tribunal? How do criminal suspects and lawyers turn into international celebrities? We will discuss these and more questions on the relation between international law and visual culture in an interdisciplinary conversation between Immi Tallgren (University of Helsinki/LSE), expert in International Law, film and celebrity culture, and Asser researcher Sofia Stolk. The conversation will be guided by images, film excerpts and artwork.
