About the contest

The contest was framed within the commemoration of the 50 years of the civil-military coup and sought a project capable of reflecting a critical and original reflection on these evolving rights: how are girls and boys thought of as legal subjects today, how does this take place in practice and how these are projected and/or imagined into a future. Such consideration is based on the fact that children are subjects of law and active participants in society. The general objective of the contest was to “Develop an exhibition project that invites girls and boys to reflect on their rights today and in the future.”
