Includes bibliographical references
"This book assembles the vision of placing the visual, textual and theoretical into a productive relation. The volume is, in the first part, a documentation of an exhibition at The Dickson Poon School of Law at King's College London containing images and commentaries by the artist. The second part is devoted to reflections on some specific images, installations and the project itself. These challenging interpretations by renowned scholars interpretations transcend the scope of the particular artworks by engaging in far-reaching theoretical considerations of the represented issues and thinkers as well as by illuminating the manifold relations of art and law. How to paint the law and the related traditions of social thought remains a fundamental question of this undertaking. Theoretical impulses, for example de-centralizing European social thought, join non-Occidental aesthetic traditions and lead to communication problems in a global world that reach far beyond spoken language and text. If it is true that innovation sometimes happens at the cross-cutting lines between different spheres and disciplines, this book may serve as an inspiration of further "Fr©œhliche Wissenschaft" without betraying the eternal normative questions of law and justice"--Back cover
