Event Navigating Carceral Bureaucracy and Surveillance

Navigating Carceral Bureaucracy and Surveillance


22 July 2023

Join You’ll Know It When You Feel It co-creators Gillianne Laurie and Raphaela Rosella as they discuss their creative strategies for nurturing relations of love and care beyond carceral geographies.

You’ll Know It When You Feel It is a co-created archive project that seeks to resist bureaucratic representations of women whose lives intersect with the prison-industrial complex. From six-minute phone calls to handwritten letters that circulate between the co-creators and their loved ones, the exhibition examines the value of their co-created archive as a site of resistance.
