Alternative Expressions of Human Rights in Latin America.

Human Rights in Latin America are often seen as an obscure subject manipulated for the sake of political objectives. Genuine concerns can often be dismissed as plays for destabilization. Therefore human rights promoters in the region have had to seek ways of getting the subject out of the realm of politics and expressed in alternative forms. Artists, entertainers, filmmakers and activists have joined forces to give human rights a new face.

In Venezuela the organization Sin Mordaza (Without a Muzzle) put together the first ever human rights art contest in the country. Consisting of three categories, digital art, photography and video, amateur artists were asked to submit works related to the lack of freedom currently experienced.  Hosted by the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies and the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs the exhibition will be spread across these three centers divided in the three categories.
