The international contemporary art exhibition Newtopia - The State of Human Rights is represented in Brussels! Come and discover a unique selection of outstanding photographs, installations and video projections created by the internationally renowned Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar.
For the artist the focus of this project is the issue of human rights and the problem of representation : the dichotomy between photography and violence, suffering and pain. The selection of photographs and films includes works related to the African continent. Jaar analyses, with a considerable regard for his subjects, the role of the media in the transmission of clichés, of spectacularity or victimisation related to social and political events.
