Prison, au-delà des murs

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.

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.
