Critical Memes

from the Internet



This 'harvest' of critical images about prisons brings together a selection of anonymous memes taken from Google Images under the term "prison memes".

Nowadays, we can all make memes. We may edit images already edited by others, upload them to the web quickly, let others see and re-edit them, and so on.

Memes may be today’s version of the paintings of the Cave of Altamira; a faithful record of the mood of an ordinary person. Anonymous, ephemeral, explosive and collectively built, they highlight the obsessions, fears and desires of our digital society.
