un:mute by Laura Dean provides a powerful and different way of telling the story of a research project.
In 1979 serving prisoners founded a women-only theatre company. Today it is the internationally-renowned theatre, education and advocacy organisation Clean Break which puts women’s experience of the criminal justice system centre stage.
Academics from Business Schools and Theatre and Performance are researching how Clean Break works and its impact on theatre, the criminal justice system, and the women at its heart.
The exhibition also sees the launch of Clean Break’s Digital Timeline, which tells its own story.
In response to the project, multi-media artist Laura Dean has created a dazzling installation of images, soundscapes and visual artefacts that are witty, angry, sad and hopeful.
