70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – A World Wide Video-Art Project!
On 10 December 1948 the UN-Council adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Each year this day is marked as the International Day of Human Rights. To mark this years 70th anniversary Dutch Foundation Stichting White Cube created an art-project, that allows artists and audiences from each corner of the world to celebrate this event.
Using the internet artists sent in their art-videos about human rights to Stichting White Cube. A jury selected 21 videos for this project and on its turn the foundation sends these videos back into the world again. Venues in Nepal, Italy, Pakistan, Germany, Hong Kong and the Netherlands will show these videos to their audiences for free.
Creator of this project, Jeroen van Paassen explains: “To celebrate human rights it is essential that there are no barriers. Entrance fee can be a barrier for some audiences. We offer these videos for free to our partners, so that they can show them for free. Human Rights are universal, therefore it should be inclusive.”
