WHAT WE DO NOT FORGET: DICTATORSHIPS
The dictatorship is the exact opposite of democracy, because it suppresses all the rights that it guarantees us.
This room displays information on the dictatorships that, until a few decades ago, interrupted democratic life in much of Latin America. On the one suffered in Argentina between the years 1976-1983, various testimonies and a documentary on the trials carried out against those responsible for crimes against Humanity from 1985 to the present are presented.
TRAPPED BODIES: SLAVERY
Slavery did not stop happening, only its forms changed. Contemporary slavery is more subtle or less visible, but as cruel and degrading as it has been throughout history. In truth, its essence has not changed.
In this room, original documents are exhibited that demonstrate the naturalness with which it was accepted, until not so long ago, that one person was owned by another. The current forms are exposed through data obtained from reports of international organizations accompanied by an audiovisual animation.
NO PLACE WHERE TO GO: MIGRANTS AND BORDERS
Human beings move, change their place of residence, cross borders. Wars, climatic changes, persecutions, famines and economic crises are some of the many reasons that motivate these movements, so often desperate, in search of a refuge for their threatened lives.
In this room objects of migrants who have come to our city are exhibited and life stories are heard. An audiovisual device introduces us to the meaning of the word border. Graphics and images warn us of the drama of millions of migrants around the world in this present.
DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Human rights have a central place in the museum: there is no democracy without validity and respect for the rights that the Universal Declaration guarantees to all citizens, without distinction.
Each of the eight imposing showcases where objects and images are exhibited refers to one of these rights and complements what is exhibited in the rooms that surround this central space.
