How do dominant theories of transitional justice organize time in a manner that allows political communities and correlative state institutions to narrate themselves away from legacies of violence, and responsibility? How do these theories manifest aesthetically? Drawing on Walter Benjamin’s legal and political philosophy, Tiffany’s PhD project turns to museum exhibitions about post-war trials in the US and Germany in order to show how aesthetic devices both affirm and interrupt the imagined role criminal law plays in political life after periods of mass atrocity.
