HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH
Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. By focusing international attention where human rights are violated, we give voice to the oppressed and hold oppressors accountable for their crimes. Our rigorous, objective investigations and strategic, targeted advocacy build intense pressure for action and raise the cost of human rights abuse. For 30 years, Human Rights Watch has worked tenaciously to lay the legal and moral groundwork for deep-rooted change and has fought to bring greater justice and security to people around the world.
Human Rights Watch is dedicated to protecting the human rights of people around the world. We stand with victims and activists to prevent discrimination, to uphold political freedom, to protect people from inhumane conduct in wartime, and to bring offenders to justice. We investigate and expose human rights violations and hold abusers accountable. We challenge governments and those who hold power to end abusive practices and respect international human rights law. We enlist the public and the international community to support the cause of human rights for all.
KLAT is a magazine made up solely of interviews: long ones, in-depth and the best. A date every three months with key players from the worlds of contemporary art, design and architecture.
KLAT offers a rich selection of questions and answers, thoughts and enthousiasms, images and words: to be enjoyed and collected. It is a publication that links up human experiences, professional challenges, conversations, stories and visions, a periodical diary written by those who are in the vanguard of contemporary visual culture, on the front line of design, at the cutting edge of aesthetics.
KLAT has chosen to focus on contemporary art, design and architecture, because they are fields which have the energy to take a new look at the world, to redefine it and reshape it. An approach that also finds expressin in the name (KLAT is TALK backwards), reflecting its desire to construct a new alphabet, a new game, a new way of talking.
NO SOUL FOR SALE is a festival of independents that brings together the most exciting not-for-profit centers, alternative institutions, artists’ collectives and underground enterprises from around the world.
NO SOUL FOR SALE celebrates the people who contribute to the international art scene by inventing new strategies for the distribution of information and new modes of participation.
Neither a fair nor an exhibition, NO SOUL FOR SALE is a convention of individuals and groups who have devoted their energies to keeping art alive. With free entrance and a rich program of daily activities, NO SOUL FOR SALE is a spontaneous celebration of the independent forces that live outside the market and that animate contemporary art.
The festival is an exercise in coexistence or – as New York Times dubbed its first iteration – NO SOUL FOR SALE is the “Olympics of non-profit groups”.
