Exhibition catalogue published by Dublin Institute of Technology, 2013


Exhibition held at the Broadcast Gallery, 2013. Curated by Adrian Langtry, Aisling Reddin, Jason Kearney, Noel Phelan, Orlaith Baldwin and Vincent Gregan.

We wanted to curate an exhibition from the perspective of the student population affected by these changes, but who will never study on the new site. It is our aim to make a contribution to ideas and proposals about how to think about the history of the site, its people, its artifacts in the present, as we all imagine its future. Delving into the past of Grangegorman with St Brendan’s Hospital operating since 1815 previously under the name of Richmond Lunatic Asylum, a connection is created between the patients and staff who provided the rich history and records of the past for preservation. This is utilised by the Grangegorman Development Development Agency (GDA) who are taking this into account in developing a sustainable Dublin Institute of Technology Grangegorman campus not only for future students, staff and local residents but in remembrance of those who were present in the former era of the site.
