Katerina Gregos about Human Rights and the chapters of NEWTOPIA
In an interview, Katerina Gregos, curator of NEWTOPIA is talking about the main subject of this exhibition: The Human Rights. She explains us also the four chapters of the exhibition, splitted in four different locations in Mechelen:
For her, Human Rights are a positive thing. one thing. And the artists who exhibit at NEWTOPIA are from all over the world, reflecting their personal view on Human Rights.
Katerina Gregos arranges the exhibition into 4 chapters which she divides into four time periods. While the first chapter is a historic view on the beginning and raising of the Human Rights, concerning mostly politcal and civil rights, the second chapter relates to a so called 2nd generation Human Rights which questioned the economic and social states. The 3rd chapter is focussing on the modern questions on Human Rights, which reflects the postcolonial discourse. At the end, there is the 4th chapter, a so called utopian-chapter, which asks the atrtits for imaginations of how could the future of Human Rights look like.
