"Prison" deals with life behind bars – with the themes of confinement, detention conditions, exclusion, but also reintegration and the role of the judiciary. A manifold scenography explores the inside and outside of prisons in a colorful and positivistic manner. Historical, philosophical, anthropological and sociological aspects of incarceration reveal the ambiguous reality of detention, they break down stereotypes and raise the possibility of alternatives to authoritarian and antiquated punitive systems.
"Prison" was produced by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva (MICR) in partnership with the Musée des Confluences in Lyon (MDC) and the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden (DHMD). The exhibition is open to the public from February 6 until August 18, 2019, at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva. Scenography: Holzer Kobler Architekturen.
