27 November, 8pm
Void Gallery, Patrick Street, Derry/Londonderry
‘In the Absence of Justice’ is a public discussion in advance of ‘J’accuse’, Void’s new exhibition, discussion is with journalists Ed Vulliamy and Eamonn McCann in conversation with Brian Maguire.
What happens society in the absence of any meaningful justice being served on those who abuse the vulnerable and marginalised? What happens when our social, political and economic institutions fail the society they were built to serve? Who then gets to speak and whose voice is heard? And what exactly is ‘injustice’, is it simply the absence of justice or is it a tendency for society and its institutions to maintain the status quo and protect the interests of the powerful?
