EMOP Opening Days On artistic and human rights interventions

Photography and art can do many things: create aesthetic and emotional moments that confuse the senses and the mind, as well as documenting, enlightening, scandalising and raising awareness – perhaps even of structural injustice? Recently, photography in particular has undergone a historical transformation through social media. It has become even easier for people to manipulate photos. Human rights lawyer Wolfgang Kaleck will discuss photography and art as media for investigating human rights violations as well as artistic and legal interventions with his guests on the evening.

In cooperation with the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR).
