9783956791406: The Flood of Rights

It is difficult to imagine making claims for human rights without using images.
For better or worse, images of protest, evidence and assertion are the lingua
franca of struggles for justice today. And they seem to come in a flood, more
and more, day and night. But through what channels does the torrent pass?
The Flood of Rights examines the pathways through which these images and
ideas circulate routes that do not merely enable, but actually shape humanrights
claims and their conceptual background. What are the technologies and
languages that structure the global distribution of humanism and universalism,
and how do they leave their mark on these ideas themselves? Which narratives
and imageries have proven easier to export and import, and whose interests
are at stake? Contributions by 14 artists, curators and academics make up this
important reader, including Thomas Keenan, David Levine, Hito Steyerl and
TIrdad Zolghadr, among others.
Contributions by: Amanda Beech, Rony Brauman, David Campbell, Olivia Custer, Rosalyn Deutsche, Thomas Keenan, Eric Kluitenberg, David Levine, Suhail Malik, Sohrab Mohebbi, Sharon Sliwinski, Hito Steyerl, Bernard Stiegler, Tirdad Zolghadr
