Seventy years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. The fundamental rights of every human being were formally laid down for the first time in history.
At FIRHM-LA we wondered how much of the Declaration’s 30 Articles was respected in Latin America. We found different answers and opinions in the media, in reports from official agencies and in papers and lectures by qualified analysts.
FIHRM-LA has chosen to focus on Article 25. We would like to invite you to share your own vision of the true application of this Article in our region by means of a photograph.
The most significant 30 images will be exhibited in museums across Latin America as from April 2019. The first openings will be held in the following institutions:
- Museo Internacional para la Democracia – Rosario, Argentina
- Instituto Internacional de Aprendizaje para la Reconciliación Social (IIARS) – Guatemala City, Guatemala
- Museo Nacional de Colombia – Bogota, Colombia
- Memorial de la Resistencia Dominicana – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
- Museo Legislativo – Mexico City, Mexico
- Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos – Santiago, Chile
- Lugar de la Memoria, la Tolerancia y la Inclusión Social (LUM) – Lima, Peru
Submissions will be accepted up to March 31st.
