Anchored to the multidisciplinary nature of human rights and democracy, EIUC Human Rights Village opens its doors to embrace the arts as an instrument for raising awareness among a wider public on themes related to human rights and democracy.
In the framework of the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, the historical cloister of the Monastery of San Nicolò provides a natural setting and atmosphere to appreciate I libri d’acqua by Antonio Nocera. This internationally renowned artist puts here the lights on the theme of “migration”. <<At the centre of his reflection is the importance of human mobility as an expression of fundamental freedom of movement and aspiration towards emancipation, which the artist expresses symbolically through voyage and travel.>> (Laura Fusco)
