The project also seeks to build a collaborative and creative platform for scholars, curators, photographers, organizations, and the public to explore new ways of exhibiting and debating the past, present, and future of human rights through visual culture. 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.
The Human Rights Exhibition Project is a research and curatorial initiative based on the photographic archive of UNESCO's Human Rights Exhibition from 1949. The project aims to open the archive to further research and the general public through events and exhibitions, and critically interrogate the first international attempt to visualize the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948.
