Agnes Schreiner

Agnes Schreiner describes notable Australian legal conflicts with terms from beyond regular legal anthropology, such as the Gestalt Switch, the mnemotechnic of the analogy, the art of appearing and disappearing. She enriches her pallet of sources from the law, legal anthropology, land claims and conferences with observations and fragments from films, documentaries, exhibitions and presentiations of Aboriginals themselves. Schreiner sheds a lucid light on the difference in principle and perspective between the Aboriginal legal culture and the Western one.

Publication bilingual in English and Dutch. Translation by Kiewik Translations.
