This project seeks to raise awareness about the daily violence that people suffer each and every day, such as economic violence, hunger and also, among others,
the twentieth century’s most common form of slavery: Human Trafficking. Utilizing Art as a metaphor, this project shows, through the lens of the artists,
the different stand points that exists to portray the same problem in the four different corners of the world. Due to the confusion of our time,
the artistic vision is a must (after all true artists have always been on the vanguard of their own times) to show the dire situation of the world today,
without falling in false ideologies, to a public that remains distant and apathetic. So, as Artists, we bring to light the degradation of
the social mesh that forms society as such, and the destruction of the environment in which that society evolves. A reality that is ignored daily by the powers to be.
In all, there will be over 90 artists from different countries comprising 5 continents who’ll show their compromise with their world…
