Art can be a powerful tool to highlight issues of social justice and human rights.

The Human Rights in Asean – The Cartoonists’ Perspective online exhibition brought together works from cartoonists and illustrators around Southeast Asia to comment on pressing issues such as the state of emergency in Malaysia; the lèse-majesté law in Thailand; the murderous war on drugs in the Philippines; the coup in Myanmar and religious extremism in Indonesia.

Curated by Malaysian cartoonist Zunar, the exhibition provides a valuable perspective of the state of human rights in the region while highlighting the crucial role of art.

Everyone’s a Critic is jointly presented with Ccndana.

Produced and presented by: Sharmilla Ganesan
