GEWAHRSAM: RAUME DER UBERWACHUNG (Custody: Spaces of Surveillance). Ed. by Arne Winckelmann and Yorck Forster. Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, 2007. Published in association with Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg. 120 pp. with numerous ills. 19 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783939583226 In German.
In addition to providing an architectural study of the old Frankfurt police prison in the Klapperfeldgasse, this catalogue offers a historical overview of prison typologies that pursue various concepts for imprisonment and supervision. In line with Foucault's text "Discipline and Punish," the discourse of penal institutions is followed based on the diverse forms these facilites have taken since early modern times. By comparing them with other types of buildings, such as industrial plants and residential settlements, healthcare institutions or churches, hidden strategies for control and channeling of forces can be elucidated. Well-preserved volume is in original wrappers.
