In Department of Justice  I look at the connection between public and private spaces in form of an improvised homeless shelter. Observing the situation around a shelter, which was directly located in front of a judiciary building in Lisbon I witnessed continuous territorial confrontations between the homeless, the police and the employees of the state institution. Regardless of that the homeless kept installing themselves right in front of the entrance of the state building. By depicting details of matter I  point to the aspect of value of home within socially disregarded life situations.
