Art 19, in association with Amnesty International, announces Art 19 – Box One, a limited edition of ten original signed fine art prints.

The first exhibition of these prints will take place at me Collectors Room Berlin / Stiftung Olbricht in Berlin with an exclusive opening on December 10, 2019—Human Rights Day. Over the following three days, further exhibitions of the prints will be held at the MAMCO—Musée d’art moderne et contemporain in Geneva (and Blondeau & Cie), at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague, as well as in the Foyer of the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2020, shows in Africa, Asia and the Americas are planned.

Ayşe Erkmen, Shilpa Gupta, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, William Kentridge, Shirin Neshat, Yoko Ono, Gerhard Richter, Chiharu Shiota, Kiki Smith, Rosemarie Trockel

For further information, please contact office [​at​] In recognition of their support for Amnesty International the artists have generously agreed not to charge a fee for their work.

Art 19 is an initiative founded by friends with lifetimes of experience in the worlds of art and human rights – Mike Karstens (gallerist and master printer, Muenster), Burkhard Richter (retired commercial lawyer, art advisor and curator, Dusseldorf), Bill Shipsey (Art for Amnesty founder and retired barrister, Dublin), and Jochen M. Wilms (entrepreneur and art project producer, Berlin).

The ambition of Art 19 is to raise money to support Amnesty International’s human rights work. The name “Art 19” is an abbreviation of Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression”.

“Amnesty International has benefitted over many years from the active support of the arts community around the world for our human rights campaigns. The impressive list of artists coming together in the Art 19 project is a humbling testament to their unrelenting support for our cause, and at a time when the world most needs our human rights movement to be strong, vocal and visible” says Kumi Naidoo, General Secretary Amnesty International.
