The Asylum Archive is an art, activist and academic platform that examines the notion of Direct Provision Centres; the localities and sites where asylum seekers are being held while in the process of seeking refugee status. It is the continuation of Vukašin Nedeljković’s ongoing work highlighting the injustices, confinement and incarceration of asylum seekers in Ireland. It is a significant work, since there is very little visual information about previous Irish carceral sites including Magdalene Laundries, Industrial Schools, Mother and Baby Homes and ‘Lunatic Asylums’.
