Human rights defense through artistic practices within conflict scenarios
A state of the art
This paper reflects upon artistic practices within conflict scenarios as a starting point for an analysis on the intersection between art and human rights. Centered on artistic practices whose intervention is focused on conflict resolution / conflict transformation in different geographical and cultural contexts, this paper follows two goals of a PhD research project: namely, to reflect upon the different concepts related with arts and activism and to compile different artistic practices that establish a connection with human rights since 2011. Within the scope of this article, institutional reports and collectives’ discourses and practices are analyzed and presented.
