The Human Rights Exhibition Project is a curatorial research initiative based on the archive of UNESCO's traveling Human Rights Exhibition from 1949 and contemporary documentary photography. The project aims to open the unknown archive to the public through events and exhibitions, and critically debate different attempts to visualize the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The project also seeks to build a collaborative and creative network of scholars, curators, photographers, and organizations exploring new ways of exhibiting and discussing the past, present, and future of human rights. The project is hosted by the Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University, and directed by Katrine Bregengaard. Read more about the project here.
