Solotentoonstelling The Future of Justice: Transversal Scepters
TAAK, Nieuw Dakota and JULIACKS invite you into the future of justice, where humanity forges new ways to deal with the consequences of crime and violence. Here, we are no longer limited by ancient methods dominated by policing and incarceration. Instead, our systems centralise healing and safety. They include the invention of platforms for accountability and mental health care, equal access to resources and changing communal norms and values.
The Future of Justice concludes a five-year artistic research project titled Transversal Scepters (2016-2021). The project involved advocates for restorative justice, academics, judges, police, prison guards, detained people and crime survivors among many others.
Within her speculative universe, JULIACKS visualises how justice processes are messy and resistant to temporal and spatial boundaries, and how they are always both a societal pursuit as well as an inner quest for everyone individually she radically reimagines the way we view harm and healing and the routes we pursue to address it.
