PRISON looks at incarceration from all angles – from imprisonment and exclusion to detention conditions, social reintegration and restorative justice. Each of these equally compelling notions serves as a reminder that incarceration is a complex and multidisciplinary issue.
In addition to exploring the historical, philosophical, anthropological and sociological aspects of incarceration, the exhibition features musical creations, photos, literary excerpts, films and first-hand accounts. In revealing the ambiguous reality of detention, it breaks down stereotypes and raises the possibility of alternatives to a punitive system that dates back to the 18th century.
