Secretary of State for Arts and Culture
Type of Work
The old Ai Pelo Prison in the district of Liquicá in Timor-Leste is a witness to the mistreatment of political prisoners and common criminals sent there by the Portuguese colonial administration before it was decommissioned in 1939. This exhibition was designed with the purpose to launch a project aiming to create a small museum and give the history of this important building back to the local community.
