Participatory Art

Looking at the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, sound, songs and text works were developed through discussions and interviews with London residents and communities.

The Human Rights Jukebox acts like a voice transmitter expressing people’s views and thoughts about their human rights. This march event brought the Human Rights Jukebox to the London streets of Camberwell and Peckham in June 2007 as part of Camberwell Arts festival.¬†Participants, local residents and artists joined the march to express their views on human rights.

Since then the project interacted in London and nationally with: Amnesty International London headquarters, Liberty festival, Tate Britain, Big Chill festival, Peckham Library,  South London Gallery, Camberwell Arts, Climate Camp and others.

This public art work is the result of Isa Suarez’ artist residency in Southwark. Funded by Acme Studios, Arts Council England, Southwark Council. With support from South London Gallery and Camberwell Arts.
