Cartoon Movement Exposition
Cartoon Movement Exposition #inalab
Around the world, human rights are increasingly under pressures and space for civil society, journalists and cartoonists is shrinking. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was created in 1948, and it is as relevant now as it was then. The 30 human rights laid down in this document are an essential condition if we want to attain freedom, justice, and peace for all, leaving no one behind. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to acknowledge its importance, the United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR) and the government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands together with the Cartoon Movement launched a cartoon contest. Out of over 500 cartoons from all over the globe, these 30 cartoons illustrate the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration. The cartoons in this exhibition make you think. They bring human rights to live. Find them in A Lab from February till April. Opening event to be announced.
