Blast the colours of the rainbow

Eyes unflinching

Flipping fingers

Tongues all out.

Get up, Stand up..


and face the corollary:


Pitch-black solitary.

Eyes for snipers

Whole hands, off

Cut the tongues

Necks on blocks.


Where would you go if the world fell apart?


The ARTISTS AT RISK PAVILION with the support of UNESCO. ARTISTS. RISKS. HUMANS. RIGHTS. is a celebration of artists and cultural professionals who risk their lives on the frontlines of artistic freedom and human rights. An exhibition and discursive programme at the intersection of the arts and human rights, the AR Pavilion will feature art, discursive panels and networking events for and by residents, alumni, partners and those who stand in solidarity with Artists at Risk (AR), the global residency programme for artists at high risk.

This edition of the AR-Pavilion holds particular significance as it marks the 10th anniversary of Artists at Risk (AR). AR has relocated over 850 (principal) artists and art professionals together with over 300 hosting partners (see stats for 2022-2023 here) around the world in its first, intense decade.

The ARTISTS AT RISK PAVILION with the support of UNESCO—Artists. Risks. Humans. Rights. is curated by Marita Muukkonen and Ivor Stodolsky, the co-directors of Artists at Risk (AR) and co-founders of Perpetuum Mobile (PM).
