Prison (Poland), August 2012

Author 2wid - Last updated: 25.10.2012

Built during Middle Ages then rebuilt after the partitions of Poland in the XVIII and XIX century. Formerly housed the church and Dominican monastery. In 1981 on the imposition of the martial law in Poland, some high rank Solidarity members has been imprisoned here.

Very interesting object and a part-time museum at the moment, lots of artists left it’s print on the walls (which sometimes looks like a real prisoners art) it adds to the atmosphere, apparently there’s still some genuine graffiti in the dining room but we didn’t have enough time to inspect it.

visited with: Life is Illusion and Płomień.

While editing i listened to the music (typical) and the ambience of one of the tracks somehow matched imo with the atmosphere of the prison.. so decided to make a short emo video version as well.. hey ho.

on with the images:

Come to Poznan next time, we have lots of objekts”
We went to Poznan, spent 8 hours there then got bundled into various 4×4′s and driven north. There were moments during the road trip I was reminded of the opening scenes of Hostel and was certain at any moment we were going to be killed for our cash and cameras
