Human Rights & the Public Sphere
Human rights & the public sphere:
Tel Aviv’s public sphere is comprised of many different social groups that are able to live together in peace, respect, and dignity.
But the contrasts between different values are still felt within the streets of Tel Aviv and raise interesting questions about the boundaries of democracy.
Using photographs from this project, we will explore together the subtle, but present tensions among the different social groups in Tel Aviv, and use this city as a laboratory to explore democracy, human rights, and the public sphere.
This lecture is ideal for interfaith groups and students between seventh grade and twelfth.
