With many parts of the world still plagued with systematic persecution in the name of ideology, religion, and ethnicity, this human rights exhibition by cartoonists and graphic artists from around the world has particular importance. Several of the artists represented have themselves been victims of human rights violations — tortured, imprisoned, or driven underground. The powerful and memorable images transcend time and place.

Satire and humor are among the tools of the cartoonists' trade. Nothing is more feared by politicians than ridicule and in its graphic form has always proved to be uniquely painful to its subject. Totalitarian regimes rarely tolerate satirizing of their leaders.

The Human Rights exhibition, which includes cartoons from over forty countries, first opened in Vienna in June 1993 in conjunction with the United Nations World Conference on Human Rights.

Number of works: 120-11" x l7"

The Human Rights Exhibition was commissioned by the United Nations.

Such drawings give us a deeper look behind the pure facts and pictures about the trampling upon human rights: the pain and fate of individuals; the mutilation of human beings; the sorrow about victims of human rights violations.
