Undocumented : The Architecture of Migrant Detention (Paperback) (Tings Chak)
About this item
Using comics, interviews, and architectural sketches, ‘Undocumented’ explores a growing industry in an era of militarized borders, state surveillance, and criminalized migration. Originally released in 2014 to an architectural audience, this special edition from Ad Astra Comix features an updated afterword by Syed Hussan (No One Is Illegal, Toronto), as well as an interview with a former detainee. Focusing on Canada’s migrant detention system, where detainees are often held in maximum security prisons without charges for indefinite periods of time, 'Undocumented' draws chilling conclusions about the societies that tolerate these punitive spaces of confinement. Proceeds from the sale of each book go to the End Immigration Detention Network.
