Archive footage from Dimitris Fragakis’ workshop in the female section at the 3rd SSC of Thessaloniki in September 2019.

Subject: “THE BRANCH”

(The imprisonment of the painting as a means of the liberation of the mind) The subject matter of the mural that was painted at the yard of the female section of the prison in the context of the summer school was selected by the detainees themselves - for their own sake - aiming at the creation of an image that absorbs the notion of confinement itself, as well as time and space. Following a discussion, the detainees unanimously selected the subject that presented four birds - similar and different at the same time - co-existing on a branch in front of a blue sky. Indeed a familiar subject matter that evoked feelings of intimacy.
