10 December 2016, International Human Rights Day | A World Wide Video-art Project

December 10, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


“Anu Banu” group presents:

On 10 December 1948 the UN-Council adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Each year this day is marked as the International Day of Human Rights. The Dutch organisation `Global Village Artists Network` (stichting White Cube) has created for this day a truly world wide project. Not only video-artists from each corner of the world, but also shown simultaniously at different venues around the globe.

Global Village Artists Network (stichting White Cube) is best known for its biennial art-project Global Village. Global Village is organized every two years since 2010. ‘Meeting’ is the central theme: artists from all over the world meet each other and the public. Every 2 years a new selection of about 65 emerging artists is made. Since 2010 we organized Global Village exhibitions in the Netherlands, France, Germany, Denmark, Azerbaijan and Macedonia. Next to this project Stichting White Cube organizes other exhibitions and projects within the EU. Stimulating cultural exchange between artists and public is the key factor in our productions.

Global Videos
Global Videos is a daughter-project of Global Village. With the Global Village-project we were faced with various logistical problems, such as costs of transport, visa, customs, etc. Due to those many artists weren’t able to be present at one of our exhibition, especially artists from Africa, Middle-East, Latin-America and Asia found it difficult to get visa or to transport their art. With Global Videos we found an easy way which enable us to receive art-videos from each part of the world by internet; no visa-, transport- or customs problems. And at the same time internet provide us a way to send the videos gathered by us back into the world to reach audiences outside our regulair exhibition-circuit.

2016 is the first year we organize Global Videos. Our aim is to build up audiences in the coming 2 years. So that in 2018 when the Universal Declaration of Human Rights celebrates its 70th birthday we can organize Global Videos at 70 locations around the world (on all continents) with 70 art-videos from artists also from each corner of this earth. Thanks to our partners Global Videos can now been seen at already 5 continents. Screenings are organized at these 16 locations:
