Ludion Publishers
Artists' Books
15.5 × 22.5 × 2.5 cm

Edited by Katerina Gregos, Elena Sorokina. Text by Ariella Azoulay, Stephane Hessel, Lina Khatib, Samuel Moyn, Raoul Vaneigem.

Newtopia: The State of Human Rights looks at human rights through the work of 70 international contemporary artists. Many of these artists come from countries or regions where human rights has been or is a particularly pressing issue, such as the Arab World, China, India, Latin America, South Africa and Russia. Much more than a straightforward exhibition catalogue, Newtopia is composed of three sections. The first part assesses the current state of the human rights debate in essays and philosophical reflections; the second collects contributions by various international human rights activists, in which gripping testimonies and historical reconstructions alternate with socio-political analyses; and the third reproduces a selection of artworks. Among the artists included are Hans Haacke, Taryn Simon, Kendell Geers, Taysir Batniji, Alejandro Cesarco, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Woloo, Nikita Kadan, Pia Rönike, Kostis Velonis, Zhou Zixi, Ai Weiwei, Marina Abramovic, Wilchar, Simon Starling, Boniface Mwongi and An-my Lê.
