VISUALIZING UNIVERSALISM EXHIBITION | 17 April - 22 May | The Arthus Ross Architecture Gallery | New York
The first public display of the Human Rights Exhibition Album and its archive since 1955.
Human rights are everywhere. They are a seemingly natural lens through which we depict suffering and injustice, nationally and globally. But why is this? Where does our visual culture of human rights come from, and have human rights always had the same meaning? This fall a new exhibition will interrogate these questions through a display and recontextualization of the 1949 Human Rights Exhibition created by UNESCO.
HUMAN RIGHTS PHOTOJOURNALISM COMPETITION | DEADLINE 1 SEPT. 2014
Participants are asked to submit photographs that depict themes from the 1949 Human Rights Exhibition, such as slavery, women's emancipation, or freedom of movement. The competition is organized in cooperation with the Danish Institute for Human Rights, and the best submissions will be displayed in the 'New World Image' exhibition in Copenhagen this fall.
