Exhibition: Human Rights Human Wrongs at the Photographers' Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 17, 2015

 on view through April 6, 2015


HUMAN RIGHTS HUMAN WRONGS [was] Curated by Mark Sealy, [and] takes the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a historical, philosophical and curatorial starting point to focus an enquiry into photojournalistic practice and its impact on humanitarian objectives.  [The Exhibition] features more than 300 original press prints, drawn from the prestigious Black Star Collection of twentieth century photoreportage. It explores what role such images play in helping us understand the case for human rights, and further addresses the legacy of how photographs have historically functioned in raising awareness of international conflict.


Spanning a time frame from 1945 until the early 90s, the exhibition examines the major political upheavals, conflicts, wars and struggles against racism and colonization that became especially urgent following World War II. . .  [and] includes images of the Civil Rights Movement in the US, independence movements in Africa, Middle Eastern and South American uprisings, the Vietnam War and key social unrest and protests in Europe. - Photographers' Gallery Press Release
