ProArcH: The Man in the Mirror. Becoming a young boy in a Norwegian prison.


«In the cell my mind start spinning. I don’t know what to think or what to look on. Every day I look at myself in the mirror and ask; should I live or should I die? Should I do It now or wait?» (a young boy in the child prison). This paper introduces the first child prison in Norway; a prison for children between 15 and 18-year-old. The prison space is an intentioned space, created within esthetic, security, control- and care discourses. The space is a manifestation of how the Norwegian Correctional Service give meaning to the concept "in the best interest of the child". In this high security space young imprisoned bodies relate to adult staff bodies and to other young bodies, but also to the materiality around; such as their cell, the locked doors, monitors, kitchen equipment, the green space outside surrounded by fences etc. What affects does this particular prison space have on the bodies of young boys? The material is conducted though etnographic fieldwork consisting of conversations and participant observation. Inspired by the deleuzian concepts affects the paper analyse how and what this particular prison space breathe into young boys processes of becoming.
