This double DVD is a selected document of the recitations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and marks a half way point in the artist's project; the Anniversary series, which began in response to the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes by police in London in July 2005.
Ross's aim is to realise sixty solo, collective and multi-lingual recitations in alliance with different communities, organisations and campaigns associated with human rights.
This limited offer also includes a rights repeated print: the text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was recited on 05.11.05 as rights repeated, an act of memory by Monica Ross, part of Chronic Epoch, Beaconsfield, 14.09.05 - 20.11.05.
This is a signed, limited edition print (edition of 150) containing the entire text of rights repeated.
