Martin Krenn and Aisling O'Beirn team up to explore untold and lesser-known narratives about the recent conflict in Northern Ireland through an artistic engagement with the legacies of Long Kesh/Maze, a former high-security prison located southwest of Belfast. In order to explore the future of the prison, the artists initiated a collaborative social sculpture by working with a broad range of people who were affected by it in different ways. The project asks how perceptions of the prison might be transformed, with a view to positively engaging with the complex realities of its past. The book includes contributions from Laura McAtackney, Suzana Milevska, and Peter Mutschler.
