2017 marks 20 years since the most massive protests in the Romanian penitentiary system took place – where thousands of imprisoned people refused food and challenged the detention conditions. Today the allegations are similar. At the beginning of the year, with the rising tide of anti-corruption, the prison system problems became secondary and the difficulties faced by over 25,000 convicted people were ignored. Ţuhaus blames the detention conditions, and the conditions people from behind the bars have to face. Therefore, Ţuhaus is an invitation to reflect on how criminalization, guilt and punishment are understood and operated by contemporary society.
