Are Prisons Computers? with Ian Alan Paul

Acid Horizon Patrons

The Acid Horizon crew are joined by artist and theorist Ian Alan Paul to discuss his essay “Are Prisons Computers?” in which he argues for a cybernetic and digital understanding of prisons and policing. Part of this digital framework also calls for a re-evaluation of the distinction between discipline and control in Deleuze and Foucault at the same time as it calls for a return to the work of the Prison Information Group, taking prisoner revolts as models for new insurrectionary techniques and new weapons for destituent escape.
