(In) Memoriam Walking Tour

Hosted by the LSE Library

LSE Library, United Kingdom

The tourism arising from the Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 is the starting point for a series of works that investigate the glamorisation and invisibility of violence against women.

(In) Memoriam's alternative commemorative walking tour, brings the histories of all women suffering violence into view by retrieving the identities of Annie Chapman, Catherine Eddowes, Elizabeth Stride, Mary Anne Nichols and Mary Jeanette Kelly. The project is finalized with the site installation of a plaque for each woman, named with her life dates. 

The Ignite Collective consists of: Ana Escobar, Natalie Koffman, Barbara Proschak, Ilenia Voleri.

The Ignite Collective was created with the aim of reflecting on the historical and contemporary experience of violence against women.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
