Description - Contested Spaces by Louise Purbrick
Contested Spaces is a global study of sites of conflict, places of loss, fear, resistance and pilgrimage where the materiality of violence forcibly brings the past into the present. The collection examines a series of internationally significant sites and how they are inhabited, represented, witnessed and visited.
