Exhibition with the artwork of the Guantánamo Detainees. In Guantánamo, from the very beginning, the detainees made art out of nothing. And they were always punished for making art or writing poetry. Recently the US Pentagon lifted the Trump Administration ban on the artworks of the detainees and some of these are going to be exhibited in Brussels aiming to highlight the meaning of art expression in captivity.
