Silenced by a Gag of Human Rights

Silenced by a Gag of Human Rights

The Night of the Dictatorship is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year. The multimedia festival is about dictatorships in the world. Like the rise of a strong leader and dealing with censorship to the use of music and visual arts by a regime.

‘The Night’ will be held in the Netherlands and is the counterpart to the United Nations Day for Democracy (September 15). It was created to think in a different way about the meaning of democracy.

In previous years, the dictators played a major role in the artwork. This year the creative team opted for a more substantive picture that symbolizes the consequences of dictatorship. Pictured are people who are being silenced by a wad of paper which is actually the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
