Thomas Keenan, Suhail Malik & Tirdad Zolghadr (Eds.): The Flood of Rights

It is difficult to imagine making claims for human rights without using images. For better or worse, images of protest, evidence and assertion are the lingua franca of struggles for justice today. And they seem to come in a flood, more and more, day and night. But through what channels does the torrent pass?The Flood of Rights examines the pathways through which these images and ideas circulate—routes that do not merely enable, but actually shape humanrights claims and their conceptual background. What are the technologies and languages that structure the global distribution of humanism and universalism, and how do they leave their mark on these ideas themselves? Which narratives and imageries have proven easier to export and import, and whose interests are at stake? Contributions by 14 artists, curators and academics make up this important reader, including Thomas Keenan, David Levine, Hito Steyerl and TIrdad Zolghadr, among others.
