Subject: CFP: Session: Carcerality and Contemporary Art

This panel explores the relationship between art and the expanded terrains of contemporary carcerality, through consideration of artistic practices that directly or indirectly engage with the politics of incarceration and/or confinement. It invites papers focusing on concrete sites of incarceration as well as their porosity, attending to the ways in which "techniques and technologies of confinement seep out of 'carceral' spaces into everyday, domestic, public, and digital realms" (Carceral Geography Working Group) through distributed modes of (self)discipline, surveillance, and control. Given that rates of incarceration have risen dramatically for vulnerable sections of the population over the past 40 years, this panel asks how contemporary art can help make legible the systemic inequalities that characterize the justice system—especially the disproportionate impact of carceral logics, institutions, and technologies on BIPOC communities across North America—while casting a critical eye on the pervasive yet highly unequal "contemporary continuum of incarceration" (Jackie Wang).
