(Dec 9) The CPHU's 224th Research Seminar “The Airspace Tribunal & Topologies of Air”

Hiroshima Universty Center for Peace's 224th Research Seminar introduces a global multidisciplinary project for universal peace, which explores a new human right to protect the freedom to live without physical or psychological threat from above. The Airspace Tribunal is an international public forum that brings together experts across a wide range of disciplines and lived experience to examine the case for and against the new proposed human rights. Topologies of Air is an immersive multi-screen sound installation and body of artwork, which questions how airspace is currently understood, and invites us to look up and consider the air (sky) above our heads not as a void or as free space, but as a multi-layered, complex cultural, social and legal space that is shared and personal, with a long history and rapidly-changing future.

Admission is free, and everyone is welcome!
