Imprisoned by debt: a conversation about art, insolvency and the past with Dr. Tawny Paul

Historically, debt is a prison. In the 1700s, artists, craftspeople and skilled laborers had a 1 in 4 chance of being imprisoned for debt during their lifetimes. Today, the debtors’ prison is less a physical space and more a state of being. This conversation invites practitioners of art and history, two fields with deep perspectives on debt, to think about the impact that debt has upon our lives and working practices. Guided by Tawny Paul, historian of the social history of debt and author of a forthcoming book about incarceration for debt in Britain, we will explore the collaborative potential between artists and historians in thinking about and communicating indebtedness past, present and future.
