Human Rights and Artistic Expression after COVID-19
In 2020 Europe is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Council of Europe’s Steering Committee for Culture, Heritage and Landscape (CDCPP) is planning to issue a Manifesto on the Freedom of Expression of Arts/Culture/Heritage in the Digital Era on June 30, 2020.
The online discussion Human Rights and Artistic Expression after COVID-19 will use this opportunity to address the following questions: What are the main democratic deficits laid bare by COVID-19? Should we rethink our understanding of the European Convention on Human Rights and its application to COVID-19 and its aftermath? What might be the role of artists and their practice in this context?
This talk is part of the European project Ideas Yard: Talking about Europe, which is a joint project of the Goethe-Institut, Austrian Cultural Forum, British Council, Czech Centres, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Italian Cultural Institute and Polish Institute and is funded by EUNIC Global.
