Newtopia: the State of Human Rights

Slide 1
Slide 2

Newtopia will explore the numerous, complex and multi-faceted issues pertaining to human rights and its evolving discourse.  Newtopia will also track the evolving nature of human rights discourse, as well as its problematics, such as the conflict between universalism and cultural relativism, one of the key debates surrounding human rights.
The exhibition will illustrate the situation in the Western world in the post-1989, post-9/11 era, a time during which human rights seem to be increasingly disregarded, and hard earned civil liberties and social rights are currently under serious threat.
