The Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the Institute of Advanced Studies on Justice, the National School of Magistrates, the Cité internationale des arts, Creating Rights, the City of Paris, artists and other partners are organizing a public exhibition and round tables to mark the 20th anniversary of the creation of the International Criminal Court by the Rome Statute.
Celebrating this historic moment serves to remind us that the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression are a violation of our humanity and that it is essential to support the International Criminal Court's action in its fight against impunity.
The exhibition presents an original and transversal approach to the International Criminal Court by combining different disciplines: history, law, sociology and art. A route designed around different spaces allows visitors to gradually enter the heart of the Court. From the presentation of this international jurisdiction, to the immersion in a trial, to the victims' view of the crimes they have suffered, the organizers and artists wanted both to pay tribute to this institution and to allow the opening of a dialogue and reflection on its functioning, its actions, its ambitions and its future.
Among the works on display, discover those of Viktoriia Sviatiuk (Ukraine), recipient of the Visual Arts Committees of the Cité internationale des arts.
