Dublin Castle are delighted to present a closing seminar, exploring their current exhibition, The Trial.
The Trial is an artwork created by artist Dr Sinead McCann, made in collaboration with men from the Bridge Project Dublin who have lived prison experiences, and research by UCD historians, Dr Catherine Cox and Dr Fiachra Byrne.
It is multi-screen video and sound installation exploring the theme of healthcare and human rights within the Irish criminal justice system.
Over the course of 22 minutes, the stories of prisoners from as far back as the 1850’s up to the present day are brought to life in a series of engaging and provocative monologues by well-known actors from stage and screen.
