Human Rights are the lens through which we understand injustice and imagine a better world. But why was the concept of human rights created only in the western world? How did they create our moral consciousness? ‘A New World Image’ interrogates these questions in a re-display of the world’s first Human Rights Exhibition, organised by UNESCO in 1949. The visual language of the current re-display refers to the historic utopian visual languages of the west, but with the non-western nations as part of the visual system. The exhibition design refers to the travelling 1949 setup, with the archive displayed on the floor.
