Re-interpreting Human Rights

The proposal aims to investigate the dynamism and complexity of human rights as well as their current (and prospective) interpretation in order to explore the boundaries, possibilities and opportunities for their future towards the flourishing of humanity with freedom and respect. It is implemented through the curation of an interactive exhibition taking various perspectives to approach human rights including hierarchy, satisfaction, elaboration, relation and aspiration. The design stimulates personal and interpersonal reflection via observation, participation and discussion. Rather than creating “for” the public, the project is a communal presentation co-produced “with” the public.
