Type T Penitentiary Illumination Exhibition

January 9, 2014 – February 8, 2014

Krampf Gallery, Kemeraltı Caddesi No. 41, Tophane

A unique exhibition which showcases 45 works made by long-term prisoners, the result of a five-month Traditional Turkish Art course. Inmates produced slang, poetry and sayings, often heard around prison, as well as letters, uniquely decorated with traditional turkish motives. The exhibition presents life from behind the bars to the outside world in order to help break the misconceptions held about prisoners.
