THE CONCEPT

On 10th December 1948 , the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was proclaimed: for the first time in the history of humanity, a document concerning all the people of the world was drawn up.

Everyone of us, only due to the fact that he was born, enjoys the rights endorsed by the Declaration.

Everyone of us, regardless of the place where he was born and where he lives, enjoys these rights.

Everyone of us has civil, political, social, economical and cultural rights.

Everyone of us is equal to the others.

Is it always so?

In HUMAN RIGHTS? artists speak about human rights. The title, simple and direct, without roundabout expressions, expresses the main idea which must go with everybody’s life.

In this event, uncomfortable, complex and denunciation subjects are dealt with, in order to sting the conscience of all those who, enjoying their own rights, don’t think about all people whose rights are violated every day.

The logic of HUMAN RIGHTS? is based on the fundamental concept of art as a universal expressive form, understandable by everybody regardless of his language and culture, regardless of his gender, of the subject and of the languages used.

Languages vary depending on the artists’ experience and mastery, and they create new relationships with the audience, who approaches art feeling immediately involved and directly concerned.

Discomfort images, violated rights images, images about everyday stories which should not exist, but even images which are able to deal with a delicate and difficult subject with wisdom and, why not, irony.

The exhibition will highlight different ways to see the matter, since the event is open to artists from all over the world. It becomes so particularly interesting to discover in which way the perception of the concept of

“respect of the rights” is experienced and expressed.

The event aims to shake consciences: it deeply wants to avoid common places brought by word abuse: to speak about human rights has become so common that the words “human rights violation” are deprived of all meaning and by now they touch us only at a distance when we hear them, without getting them into our heads.

The most immediate way to retrieve that conscience, essential to be really part of a system which respects everybody’s rights, is to see with one’s eyes all that artists have to say. Images insert themselves in one’s memory in such an immediate and strong way that all those who visit it will leave it more conscious and emotionally involved.

To speak about human rights, according to artists, means to “pull out” many ideas which can’t find the space fit for the purpose in other events.

HUMAN RIGHTS? wants to be a strong signal to all the artists and to all those who will visit it.


FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY – 1914 / 2014

On July 28th, 1914 World War I breaks out.
From this very moment, the life of all Europeans and beyond boundaries, remaining indelibly etched in history and in memory as one of the most horrible moments of modern time.
The sense of precariousness slowly transforms into a feeling of finality in the souls of all those who are directly or indirectly involved. The Great War leaves its mark on an era and its people.
Poets, writers, and artists have felt the need to talk about it, to recount it, and to bear their testimony to all about the things they often experienced directly on the front.
The value of human life is annulled, and with it the understanding of existence by all the contemporaries of that period, (many of whom will bear witness to a second conflict in the latter half of the century), as well as those will follow, who in their memories will be laden with the memories of their parents and grandparents, whose suffering, in turn, has become entrenched as part of their existence.
The time period known as “the short 20th century” is characterized by wars regarding supremacy and domination in Europe. The aberration of this notion is what spawned the dictatorships and Nazism that so horribly blemish this era in European history.
And it is this aberration of the notions of war and death that eventually gives rise to a period of profound reflection regarding the necessity for peace and cooperation among peoples.
As it were, war and suffering also provided the impetus for developing the idea of creating the “Maria Dolens”, an evocative name that seems to bear the burden of all the pain and suffering that humanity, in all its frailty, could not withstand.
Bells have always served as powerful folk symbols and icons of congregation, (in medieval times bells were rung to summon people to convene).
Maria Dolens was forged by melting the bronze of cannons from the nations involved in the Great War – a fortuitous and revolutionary concept that provides a vision that is both completely novel, yet very contemporary.
The “Maria Dolens” affirms the fundamental principle that the development of a society does not occur from the submission of one country to another, but through mutual cooperation that aims at enriching the civil, cultural and political lives of all citizens.
It is no longer “the empire”, but democracy, the participation of the people, and government by the people via specific laws and a constitution, that guarantee peace between nations and completely exclude wars.
The „Maria Dolens” itself serves as a reminder for mankind to never forget its true essence.
