The Human Rights Exhibition Project is a curatorial research initiative based on the archive of UNESCO's traveling Human Rights Exhibition from 1949. The project aims to open the largely unknown archive to the public through events and exhibitions, and critically interrogate the first attempt to visually disseminate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948.
The project also seeks to build a collaborative and creative network of scholars, curators, photographers, and organizations exploring new ways of exhibiting and debating 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 is directed by Katrine Bregengaard. Read more about the project here.
