Artist Dis-Placement at the JVA (prison for women) - Victoria Tomaschko

Victoria Tomaschko ( Germany )

For six months, Tomaschko is visiting the the JVA for women in Berlin.
For the JVA for Women in Berlin and these who work with them (working title of the project) she is using a combination of writing (interview transcripts) and images (portraits).
Tomashko is portraiting women and men who work in prison and is particularly interested in how the prison environment impacts those who work there. For this project she goes into all parts of the prison she is allowed to access, takes part in the daily routine and talks to inmates.
