Authored by Ariella Azoulay, Stephane Hessel, Katerina Gregos, and  Elena Sorokina Newtopia: The State of Human Rights looks at human rights through the work of 70 international contemporary artists. Much more than a straightforward exhibition catalogue, Newtopiais composed of three sections. The first part assesses the current state of the human rights debate in essays and philosophical reflections; the second collects contributions by various international human rights activists, in which gripping testimonies and historical reconstructions alternate with socio-political analyses; and the third reproduces a selection of artworks. Among the artists included are Kendell Geers, Taysir Batniji, Alejandro Cesarco, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Woloo, Nikita Kadan, Pia Rönike, Kostis Velonis, Zhou Zixi, Ai Weiwei, Marina Abramovic, Wilchar, Simon Starling, Boniface Mwongi, An-my Lê, and Ganzeer.
