Virtual exhibition “Faces and rights”
This exhibition celebrates the 60th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights with a series of portraits and scenes of everyday life: a mosaic of individual situations illustrating both the enjoyment and the deprivation of our most cherished rights and freedoms.
All through this narrative sequence, human forms and faces take centre stage, thereby bringing our rights to life. Each of these 12 panels represents an article of the Convention. Together, they form the pages of an open book on our most symbolic rights. The Convention is a living instrument that must be constantly enriched to meet the new challenges facing our societies.
