This joint project is the result of almost two years of informal conversations and discussions about our respective interests and research fields as PhD students at the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies (University of Nottingham). Some of those topics have to do, for instance, with the use of barbed wire in residential areas, the construction of the internal enemy during the Brazilian dictatorship, or the emergence of reconcentration camps in late-c19th Cuba. We expect this exhibition to work as an incentive for colleagues from disciplines such as Archaeology, Geography, Cultural Studies, Architecture, Human Rights, History and Politics, to approach the study of the materiality and spatiality of mass confinement from an interdisciplinary and non-conventional perspective. We will be very happy if you let us know your opinions, comments and ideas.
