Abstract

The relationship between prisons and museums is complex and multilayered, and in the last decades it has been further enhanced by the growing number of transformation processes implemented on former carceral sites. Building on the observation of an emblematic experience, that of the Horsens’ Prison Museum, the paper aims at reflecting on the potentialities and challenges implied in the musealisation of former prisons, and at analyzing the dialogues that ensue from the intertwine of the architectural, museographic and cultural layers embedded in the project.
