Bart Lodewijks: New Neighbours / Nieuwe Buren

Bart Lodewijks was invited to make chalk drawings in Belgium’s newest prison, in Haren, Brussels. When he arrived there it was still only a construction site, so he started drawing along the Witloofstraat , the street the prison is located on. He soon became acquainted with the local residents who were concerned about the pending arrival of their new neighbours; twelve hundred prisoners. Fourteen months later the inmates arrived in vans with bulletproof glass. Lodewijks goes inside with the very first group of them, eager to draw on the most feared wall of them all, the wall of walls, to breach the line separating good from evil.
