Between September 2005 and May 2007 CÄlin Dan has been involved in a collaboration with the inmates from the ColibaÅi Penitentiary, within the frame of a project commissioned to him by the Office of the Chief Government Architect of the Netherlands (Atelier Rijksbouwmeester). The first outcome of this process was a theatre performance (in 2007) reflecting on the human condition of the criminals in modern Romania. Written and directed by the artist, the play Carne / Cane was performed by a group of inmates for an enthusiastic audience, at Odeon Theatre.

Another outcome of the same process is Wings for Dogs (2009), a video- essay about our perception of timeless themes such as responsibility, crime, destiny and punishment. MNAC brings to the public in a brand new video installation the documentary material resulted from the editing of about 60 hours of conversations with the inmates, and the two already completed results of this project.

For this occasion a publication will be produced. As an opening event, a round table discussion about how public art commissions can handle sensitive social topics will be organised. The invited guests are: Jean Boumans (Huis voor de Kunsten Limburg; ex-curator of Atelier Rijsbouwmeester and coordinator of the project), Mariana Celac(architect and essayist), Dana Cenusa (The National Administration of the Penitentiaries), Arno van Roosmalen (Director, Stroom, Den Haag), Bruno Stefan(sociologist, author of The Romanian Penitentiary Environment).

Proiect realizat cu sprijinul / With the support of: Mondriaan Foundation, Ambasada Regatului Tarilor de Jos / Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture, Penitenciarul Colibasi / Colibasi Penitentiary.
