The Funambulist Nº4

Carceral Environments

MARCH-APRIL 2016

The fourth issue of The Funambulist Magazine is dedicated to carceral environments, examining various forms of incarceration spaces in relation to the bodies they imprison. Architecture’s violence is never greater than through its carceral typology, and a bit of this typology lies in all architecture. The issue explore political prisons in Ireland, migrant detention centers in the United Kingdom, Indigenous boarding schools in Canada, the carceral history of Guantanamo Bay, labor camps in California, and prison abolitionism in additions to the usual photographic and student sections, as well as the opinion columns and blog article re-edition.
