World Economic Forum
From inequality to climate change, all major issues have important cultural dimensions that are often overlooked: fear, prejudice, stories of exclusion or a collective failure of imagination block our ability to create change. How should we address this? The World Economic Forum believes that arts and culture can promote inclusive and sustainable change. Angélica Dass was elected as one of 36 other cultural leaders at the WEF’s annual meeting in Davos. For the first time in the history of the event, an artistic work was placed at the entrance of the Congress Center, a large-scale, outdoor Humanae installation welcomed attendees.
Cultural leaders joined Davos to speak truth to power and inspire more responsive and accountable leadership
Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion. It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
