„Human rights are in me - an interdisciplinary workshop”

Art School Complex in Bydgoszcz

A project by the Complex of Art Schools in Bydgoszcz entitled "Human Rights Are in me/interdisciplinary workshop", which will be implemented under the artistic curatorship of Ms Viola Kuś, an experienced artist and researcher, involves a broad theoretical concept of deepening students' awareness in the scope of Human Rights and a technological workshop of unconventional photography. 


The implementation of the project assumes an educational screening together with an in-depth discussion of the Watch Docs Festival film repertoire. The practical work will involve the creation of spatial objects based on models of the human body, with the introduction of performative elements intended to stimulate in the workshop participants the factor of compassion and empathy towards those situations and human fates where the basic principles of the equal right to life are violated. These objects will be created by hand-scanning and 3D printing. The resulting miniature forms of human figures will be used to create dioramas (mock-ups) for studio photography. The resulting photographs will then be transferred onto wooden everyday objects (tables and chairs of classroom equipment).  


The final activity will be video documentation of the entire project, showing the individual processes of creation and discourse related to young people's attitudes towards human rights violations caused by changes in the current world.
