    Bordered Lives

    Immigration Detention Archive

    Mary Bosworth, Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll, and Christoph Balzar

    The experience of detention from the perspective of the immigrant, drawing on the fields of art, design, and criminology.

    Drawing on original documents, photographs, and detainee artwork, Bordered Lives offers a unique insight into the experience of immigration detention in the United Kingdom. With interdisciplinary backgrounds in art, design, and criminology, the authors present views of everyday life under this form of border control. In offering a glimpse within these hidden sites, they explore fundamental questions about coercion, censorship, and control, as well as belonging and resistance.

    This book introduces the Immigration Detention Archive and reflects on the conditions under which art is supposed to be produced (and is undermined) in institutional spaces. Mixing shadow puppetry, photographic slides, video, architectural models, and spoken word, Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll's performance Men in Waiting presents the effects of indeterminate detention, bureaucratic indifference, and banality on the subjectivity of the incarcerated.

    Botanical Drift

    Protagonists of the Invasive Herbarium

    Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll

    Botanical Drift explores the hermeneutics, historicization, semiotics, and symbiosis of plant diversification, species cultivation, and destruction—past and present, extant and extinct—around the globe. Plant histories are explored as commodities and colonial as well as decolonial devices by significant and diverse feminist, art-historical, and anthropological voices—from Germaine Greer to herman de vries—bringing new perspectives through photo-essays, fiction, performance, and interventions in ecological, film, and translation archives. Reflecting on experimental ecology—the undiscovered, underestimated, and undesired non-European flora and fauna—it challenges perception and inspires potentialities to bring new understandings of the undergrowth of the Kew Gardens botany collection.

    Productive Universals—Specific Situations

    Critical Engagements in Art, Architecture, and Urbanism

    Anne Kockelkorn and Nina Zschocke

    Essays chart the shift of the concept of universality from essence to modality, from the abstract and static to the performative and productive.

    In today's increasingly digitalized and neoliberal societies, debates on universals and specifics have gained new momentum. This volume discusses the entanglements of the universal in the fields of art, architecture, and urbanism from the nineteenth century to the present. Highlighting the interrelation of the specific and the universal in each historical situation, these essays venture an epistemic shift of the concept of universality: from essence to modality, from the abstract and static to the performative and productive.
