ERSTE Foundation shows: Land of Human Rights

Land of Human Rights

The new edition of “ERSTE Foundation shows” presents the project “Land of Human Rights”: a long-term initiative dealing with the situation of human rights in Europe from a visual art’s perspective. An integral part of the project is the poster campaign. Since 2007 four campaigns were produced, each one comprising four posters. The front side of the posters features works by artists on current human rights issues. On the back side, short texts by human rights activists, theorists or people affected by human rights are published.

“ERSTE Foundation shows” is a platform for showcasing projects, project partners, and current issues of ERSTE Foundation, as well as artistic positions. “ERSTE Foundation shows” is a window giving visitors and the interested public an insight into our work.
