From 18 December onwards, the My Human Rights Hero exhibition will be supplemented with work created by four graduation students from the Royal Academy of Art The Hague for their own annual exhibition. As part of their degree programme, these promising photographers drew inspiration from the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Based on Nelson Mandela’s famous handshake, Caspar von Eugen examines the handshake as an instrument. Indra Gleizde is moved by the sense of self-awareness among many human rights activists. She showcases this self-reflection in found footage, video and poster material. The born feminist Jill Verweijen uses photography and video to show that feminism can sometimes rear its head in the most unexpected places. And Daniela Rosca has created a multimedia, three-dimensional installation to demonstrate the propelling effect of using digital resources in the fight for human rights. She conducts research into the ‘dark web’ case of sexual abuse of children and tools that help combat the problem, such as a virtually created boy.
