Flood of Rights





Flood of Rights is the outcome of the second LUMA Foundation Conference in Arles, France, exploring the technological transformation of human rights and organised in collaboration with CCS Bard. Flood of Rights is conceived as a companion volume to The Human Snapshot, published on the occasion of the first conference in 2011. Flood of Rights features essays that reflect upon the way in which human rights claims are now made and conveyed through digital channels and the implications this has on human rights praxis. In both publications we deployed both unconventional visual strategies and classical typesetting to produce an object that expands the subjective image-driven critiques, while maintaining the tradition of an unassuming, clothbound library book.
