Dad behind bars

2008

KØS -  museum of art in public spaces

How does it feel for a kid to have a parent in prison? Together with a 10th grade class we investigated and made an exhibition about relationship. The exhibition was a annex to the exhibition “Art Behind Bars” about public funded art for the new East Jutlands Prison.

The exhibition were in two part. One about how it feels to have a parent in prison, where the pupils gave their expression about this. It included an interview with one of the pupils that had a dad in prison, sound from interviews with two inmates that had kids and other more expressive artistic expressions. The other part was a 1:1 model of a proposal for a new interior design of the visiting room at Køge Arrest.

Køge Arrest accepted and implemented the new “kid friendly” interior design and got inmates to help decorate it.
