Between prisons of the image and images of the prison

This article discusses the subject of prisons, regarding the image and the subjectivity. Taking into account Foucault's analyses according to which the prisons are established in the nadirs of everyday life through disciplinary practices and games of visibility and enunciability, we ask ourselves: How can the experimentation with the production of digital images in regard to the work in the prison, in particular that of prison officers, create a perturbing plan of the current prison technologies, leading to dissonances in the enunciabilities and the visibilities that traverse the prison?
