Description
When art takes its inspiration from correctional facilities. This book is the result of an international collective project in which the artists were asked to reflect on the architecture of seclusion, in search of different ways of documenting the institutional spaces intended to punish and, at times, to improve the individuals by their separation from the rest of society. Prisons, mental hospitals, and other corrective institutions are constantly developing--ideologically, structurally, and architecturally--enclosing entire stories of violence and resistance. But how is a confinement space conceived? How can it be reported? The artists reflect on places of constriction, correction, and isolation whose functional mechanisms remain behind the visible, aided by a space-time line that separates them from the life outside.
