Price discusses her current research towards a new film that explores the overwritten histories and redrawn boundaries of Holloway Women’s Prison, the largest women’s prison in Western Europe and the only women’s prison in London until it was decommissioned in 2016. Her talk will reflect on Holloway’s legacy spatially and ideologically as a site of remembrance and absence. The work continues her interest in dialogical aesthetics, aesthetics of commitment and the politics of enunciation and how her practice is situated on the borderline between artist and ethnographer, geographer and sociologist, participant and observer in producing different ways of thinking about contested sites and engaging with collective struggles.
