PRINT PORTFOLIO (article first published : 1999-10-22)

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) adopted in 1948 by the United Nations as a response to the atrocities committed during the Second World War, will mark the 50th anniversary on December 10, 1998. In order to celebrate this important anniversary “Artists for Human Rights” (a group of human rights activists and artists working together in Durban since 1988) is producing an International Print Portfolio consisting of images based on the thirty articles of the UDHR.

The participating artists for the International Print Portfolio are from 30 countries, which have suffered great human rights abuses. Each article will depict one of the articles of the UDHR and the graphics resulting from the artist’s blocks will be presented, as a box set with a catalogue and both will be marketed in South Africa and abroad. The opening exhibition is to be held at the Durban Art Gallery to be inaugurated by Madame Danielle Mitterand and concurrently at the United Nations in New York on December 10. All funds generated through this initiative will be administered by the Artists for Human Rights Trust for the advancement of human rights education. IPPWebsite: http://www.ahr.org.za
