 In Exhibition

Albus Lux Contemporary, Stripes Clothing and filmmakers Thiemo van Dam, Rien Bexkens en Ruben Broekhuis organised this unique multimedia concept: The Prison Project.

Foto filmmakers + Menno

his project was made around the work of the young Belgian photographer Sébastien van Malleghem who reported in no less then 10 prisons from 2011 till 2015. Prison aims at opening our eyes on inmates; casting lights on the failures of an absolute judicial and penal system which remains to this day inscribed in the country that taught us the ideals of justice and humanity.

The story behind the lens is shown in the documentary while van Malleghem is shooting his famous “PRISON” series. The purpose of the short film and the exhibition of the photos is to show the misery resulting from being deprived of freedom and human relations.
