Tattoo Circus London
A d.i.t benefit event in solidarity with all those targeted, incarcerated, and murdered by prison society. The London Tattoo Circus is an opportunity for people to come together in a communal, creative context to target the realities and concept of prisons.
Throughout a weekend of tattooing, circus, and music, there will be workshops, performances, and talks with a shared focus on anti-prison struggle and (prisoner) solidarity. All money raised will go towards those effected by and defying prison society.
The first Tattoo Circus happened in Rome in 2007, and events of the same name are now held in Barcelona, Thessaloniki, Bern, Berlin, Athens, Zurich, Bristol and Madrid, each sharing dangerous ideas and passionate struggles but referring to specific contexts.
When we say we are against the concept of prison, we mean that we are against the forces that routinely brutalise, incarcerate, alienate, pacify and humiliate us, both within and outside the walls of prisons and detention centres.
We believe that the prison is not limited to the internal dynamics of ‘actual prisons’, but characterises the conspiracy between every single technique of systematic domination.
