The exhibition invites visitors to reflect upon the current prison system inherited from the eighteenth century through the stories told by former inmates as well as representations of our collective imagination. The exhibition’s immersive design stresses the paradoxical nature of prisons as they isolate individuals – to punish them and to protect society – whilst striving towards their social reintegration. An alternate visitor trail explores the daily lives of inmates through drama.
