"Department of Justice" is a project study developed within the workshop „Strategies against the map“ in Lisbon in February 2018. While I was questioning the significance and the relation between inner and outer living spaces in a geographically limited urban space two homeless' „igloos“ caught my attention. They were located in the Lisbon city centre ironically right in front of a state department of justice. I witnessed a continuous territorial battle between the homeless and the department with the support of the police in which the homeless had repeatedly rebuilt their improvised street quarter exactly in the same spot in front of the state building. From a inverse perspective it seemed like the „igloos“ themselves changed into departments of justice.
